Looking for load a soil & good testing kit
I'm trying to help my dad out, he has a garden in the backyard but he says its very swampy and last year he did not get that good of a crop. He wants to get a load of soil so he can raise it up out of the swampy area (drainage is a problem the garden is about 5 feet away from a 3 foot high hill that backs up into an ally that backs up into a shopping center. He has had good crops before but he thinks the water is becoming an issue. I think the soil may just need something that I could detect with a soil testing kit. Anyone have any recommendations of what kind (looking for cheap (price wise)) of soil to order and a good testing kit?
He always grows tomatoes, jalapeno, habaneros. Then he grows other stuff depending on what he finds at store.
The zone thing at the top says USDA zone 6 we are in central Ohio
