Good video except that, for most people, your use of the word "testing" is a misnomer: Most of us consider soil testing to refer to chemical tests for pH or fertility…that is, testing for the chemical, not the physical, properties of the soil.

thanks very mucha for this very good piece of information, do you know if it is possible to test the ph without using test kits? I know that the type of weed growing in the soil can tell if it acidic…Many thanks
