Get a jump on preparing your garden soil for next year. While putting your gardens to bed for the winter take a soil sample.
For information on how to take a soil sample go to http://cceschoharie-otsego.org/gardening/how-to-take-a-soil-sample. Bring the soil sample to the Cornell Cooperative Extension office at 123 Lake Street, Cooperstown and your soil will be tested for pH and you will be advised on the need to amend you soil and how to do this. You can also arrange to submit your sample to Cornell University for further analysis. There is a cost to these tests/analysis.
