Years ago I raised rabbits in my back yard and their droppings were perfect for home gardens. Hardly any smell and they were dry for the most part. I'd have to check the city codes here if I wanted to start up raising them again. Kept my freezer stocked with fresh bunny meat too!

I had to dump a few boxes of baking soda across the top of my garden. Noticed a lot of crabgrass and small weeds growing and sure enough soil test showed pH was just below 6. I've never done the baking soda thing so hopefully sprinkling it all over then watering does the trick. We mixed in a bunch of pine shavings and chicken poop back in March so I'm wondering if that's what lowered the pH or if it's been low for awhile. This is what we have going this year along with Plums and Apples that might fruit for the first time this year.

Mustard Greens, Lettuce, carrots, onions, garlic, horseradish, peppers, tomatoes, leeks, chives, amaranth, corn, potatoes, cucumbers, snow peas and various herbs.

Not sure I understand. Crabgrass and weeds is indicative of a low pH?
