Re: soil types and pH

I remember the pictures you showed us in Hot Springs - no bare spots in
this gal's yard folks - it is LUSH!! It probably does run to the acid
side, like far East Texas in the Piney Woods region.

I got my soil sample ready to go to A & M on Tuesday. Will be interested
to see what improvement (if any) has occured since the last test.
