I'm still a newbie when it comes to ducks but I started hearing quite a bit about how great the old pond water is for plants. I started out as a pepper guy and wanted to see what I was working with before I applied it to my plants. I got some odd results with a soil test from a big box store. Zero trace of nitrogen and low/med levels of phosphorus and potassium. I took the sample from a 50 gallon pond that hadn't been drained in ~5 days. Made sure to stir up the water a bit prior. It did rain last night quite a bit but it doesn't seem to have affected the P/K results. Any ideas? Anyone ever try to test their pond water? I was expecting them ALL to show trace...or even the exact opposite of what I got... getting such high marks on the other two had me curious. A better test would probably be solid manure but pond water is much easier to contain and collect. Maybe another day.
