I noticed in a few posts the mention of lime to lower ph. Often people say one thing & mean another. At other times they just don't know the basics. Battery acid is 0 on ph scale & lye is 14 so if we add lime we are raising ph not lowering it. Peat moss is about 5.5 a bit acidic so add a bit of lime about 3 tbsp per gallon to raise ph to 6.5 . My well water from tap is 8.5 so I add urine which is ph 6 at ratio 15 water to 1 urine & add 1 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar to that as I use ph balanced soil. Compost is 7 so adding it to peat puts you close to good but a bit acid still so add a bit of lime. Once you balance your soil unless you change formula it stays the same. Other than hydroponic growing people miss that it is soil microbes that make plants thrive. My garden registers low in nitrogen but it is chock full of what my dad called tilth. They call for nitrogen @ 30 lol for corn to grow. Mine is 4 but I have nice big corn.
