Soil Test Results... Thoughts?

So now that sewage concerns have been laid to rest and light looks sufficient, I have finally done the soil test. I'm wondering what you all think of these results. Nitrogen looks low. Phosphorus looks medium to medium-high. Potassium looks high. pH is at 7.0. Thoughts on the situation in general, fertilizer, etc.?

Sounds like you're right on track. Add some composted manure (nitrogen) and you should be good to go. Mix in some element sulfur (or iron sulfate or magnesium sulfate) if you want to plant acid loving plants.
