Interesting pH Facts

What’s my latest passion?   Learning everything I can about gardening.  Not just any type of gardening,  but also cool and interesting exotic fruits and vegetables that can be grown in our California Mediterranean climate.

Using Worm castings has defenitely accelerated the gardening experience…once you use some Worm Dudee on you plants and see the results…you’re hooked.

Here are some interesting pH facts.  Just a reminder, the pH scale is logarithmic (And counterintuitive), so a substance with a pH of 5 is ten times more acidic than one with a pH of 6.

Check out the pH level of some of these items.

8.5  Baking Soda                         

8.2  Seawater                              

7.5  Human Blood                     

4.5  Tomato Juice                    

3.1  Apples                                  

2.5  Vinegar                                

1  Battery Acid            

If you’re wondering how these pH numbers have anything to do with raising worms, remember my recent Worm Inn post where I’m currently composting 36 apples!  Updates coming!
