Now I really don't know what to think!
True that it's a home made test, but I think I did everything fine.
There's PH reagent pastilles and distilled water to add to soil..
I tried to catch colors better than I could, as you can see the two test are showing a color that's not really blue that it's the color indicating ph 7.
In person they were more toward blue/green. Teal. The first pic is the clay soil amended with some peat the past year. The second pic is the soil test where the soil is still the original clay I had found here, it wasn't depositing because it's really all mud (with a horde of earthworms living happily in it).
I'm waiting for the vial to dry then will try the test with a bit of the peat moss I have here (the bag says it's acid) and see if the color change.
I'm really puzzled!
Too bad that the test stops at ph 7 color blue, but in my testing the blue was not even reached.
Thanks for looking!!
(Sue- another hard work for you
