Garden Soil pH - I didn’t think too much about pH as I prepared my containers last year. I have a good meter, but since I was adding a lot of organic matter to the soil mixes I felt that would buffer any pH’s that were at the margins for most of my plants. Naturally it followed that some things didn’t do as well as I’d hoped.
Baking soda neutralizes the ph in the soil and nothing will grow there. use baking soda around all of the edges of flower beds to keep the grass and weeds from growing into beds. Just sprinkle it onto the soil so that it covers it lightly. Do this twice a year - spring and fall. Awesome! | Craft ~ Your ~ HomeCraft ~ Your ~ Home
Alkaline Foods & Drinks (& Why They are Actually Good for You)
"When the body is acidic, it creates an environment for viruses and bacteria to flourish. The effect is a weakened immune system, frequent illness & infection and is considered part of the underlying disease process. Some of the common conditions related to acidity include osteoporosis, cancer and arthritis. Research shows that the pH of cancer tumors are always acidic but a diet high in alkaline minerals which raises the pH, helps to prevents cancer growth and cell mutation.
