Alice, nothing's easier.  Take a spoon of earth here and there and there,
put them in a jar, shake it and let the dirt settle for 10 or 15 minutes,
then dip a pH paper in it, and see what color it emerges.  

If you don't do it, your garden may not grow like you want it to, and
things may be easily remedied.  this one's a snap.  Margaret
