Thanks Tracey for organising the trip to Te Puna Quarry Park, it really was a lovely day out. Great to see the changes up there, the herb garden was most interesting and I really enjoyed such good company.

Just read this in NZ Gardener.  Cheap way to test soil

Place soil in icecream container.  Add ½cup vinegar.  if it fizzes its alkaline

new soil, ½cup water ½ cup baking soda.  If it fizzes its acidic

If nothing happens with either, soil is neutral.

Why buy a testing kit??
