I love exploring flea markets! Look at what I found this time: a soil test kit that can probably be dated back to the 50′s and 60′s. This kit can test for nitrogen, phosphorus, potash, and pH. I’m glad the kits today can fit in my pocket.
Iron enough to make a nail,
Lime enough to paint a wall,
Water enough to drown a dog,
Sulfur enough to stop the fleas,
Poison enough to kill a cow,
Potash enough to wash a shirt,
Gold enough to buy a bean,
Silver enough to coat a pin,
Lead enough to ballast a bird,
Phosphor enough to light the town,
Strength enough to build a home,
Time enough to hold a child,
Love enough to break a heart.
