We're in the minus 20's*C. now which hasn't happened at this time of year for quite some time. Your 32* is our zero. This is more like the normal we used to have 20-30 years ago, but it's supposed to begin warming again after the weekend, & that usually means snow. But it's dry & dressing for it is the way it is.

That's the kind of analysis I would like for mine.

Comment by Sentient Biped on December 7, 2013 at 12:34pm

Yours was high in almost everything, but maybe a bit alkaline.  Good soil!

Comment by Sentient Biped on December 7, 2013 at 12:33pm

I spent some time searching the internet.  I really don't know how reliable they are, or what one gets for the money.  Your kit's test for the major components. 

Comment by Idaho Spud on December 7, 2013 at 12:12pm

Your company is a lot less expensive and tests for soluble salts that mine didn't.

Comment by Idaho Spud on December 7, 2013 at 12:01pm

That company charged $44.

Sentient, My kits only test for PH, Nitrogen, Phosphorus, and Potash.

I found the company I sent a sample to.  Here's the company and the results: http://www.drgoodearth.com/_ccLib/testresults/07132009-738767-005-0...

Spud,

Amazing weight loss!  Gardening is good for you!

Did your kit include trace minerals?  I can test pH but I don't know about phosporus, potassium, calcium, magnesium, manganese.....

This is the place I was thinking about sending a sample to.  I have some soil drying to mail them.   I have so many big molehills, I collected from those.  I use the molehills to fill raised beds, so it makes sense.  A few weeks supply of mole hills will fill a raised bed. Plus, since they sample a pretty big area, I figure it must be a wide sampling.

Thanks for the input.  This is something I've wanted to do for quite a while.

Sentient, I've had my soil tested by mail.  I've been waiting to respond until I found the company, but no luck.  Anyway, the results were reasonably close to what my $10 and $20 testing kits measured that I purchased from my local nursery.

My brother has an ice-auger and took me ice-fishing last year.  A first for me.  It was enjoyable.  There were several others with axes.

By the way, using an augur priest to drill holes in the ice sounds like a good use for them : )

I have a rough ice-pond a few blocks from me and a new nice one a few miles away.  I'm thinking about trying skating again this year.  Last year my bod was so fat and my ankles were so weak that I gave-up quickly before I broke one.  After all the digging and wheelbarrowing I did this year, combined with loosing 40 pounds of fat may allow me to enjoy it again.
