Soil ph levels
Hello. Question: Is a soil ph of 5.5 to acidic for most veggies (besides potatoes)? I understand that the IDEAL level for most veggies is 6.5-7 ph but I read also that each vegetable can handle slightly different ranges. Each site I read gives them different ph tolerances so it's hard to get any objectivity.
I have a bunch of organic seeds (cabbage, shallot, tomatoes, beans,radishes, carrots) but I just got a ph testing of my soil on March 1st (I know:stupid).
Any hope or should I just throw the seeds away....
or is it still worth the effort to go ahead and try the seeds I got?
I put Lime on March 2nd (along with lots of compost) in the ground but I suppose it won't change the ph for a good few months to a year.
