Please keep in mind that "fertilizers" cannot substitute for key nutrients
in the soil. If you are lacking in a nutrient it needs to be added. I.e.,
compost won't always make up for deficiencies, so get your soil tested. It's
like getting a map before a long journey. Timberleaf Soil Testing, tho more
expensive, will give you a FULL soil analysis, AND recommendations on
how/how much to amend your soil organically. Most other soil testing groups
won't give you the recommendations.

I've heard that it's in Fairmount Park now. That combined with the fact that
summer now starts on May 1... get ready for a new ride!
