If there’s one positive to come out of our current situation, it’s the incredible surge of interest in gardening.  Now more than ever, people are realizing the importance of growing and producing their own food.  As any veteran gardener knows. your soil is perhaps the most important factor when it comes to successfully growing your own food.  While it’s not necessary for everyone to get their soil tested, on today’s episode I explain when and why you should do it, where you can get it done, and what you should do with the results.  Finally, I explain what happens when you have high levels of nitrogen or carbon and what can be down without it.  Whether you’re a veteran gardener or a total novice, this episode is a must listen!
