Fog, a poem by Carl Sandburg.

The fog comes
on little cat feet.

It sits looking
over harbor and city
on silent haunches
and then moves on.

Sentient, It looks like the company you were looking at gives the same kind of analysis that mine did.  Good luck.

-25 C is -13 F, which is quite cold.  That's about as cold as I've ever seen it where I live now.  I used to live 30 miles south of here and saw it get -30 F (-34 C).  About froze my hands off trying to start my car even with mittens on.

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

Comment by Daniel W on December 7, 2013 at 12:34pm

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

Comment by Daniel W 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.

Comment by Idaho Spud on December 7, 2013 at 11:56am

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.
