Today we looked at plant families. We had class for a good part of the morning talking about what plants belong to what families and why.  I enjoyed this part of the class, it is good to know what plants are similar and should not be planted in large amounts.  We also talked about plant nutrition. Macro and micro nutrition. These are the nutrients which are found in plants.  We went over plant deficiency and what problems to look for and how we would go about fixing them. We can add more of one nutrient  to solve the problem. we also talked about the pH scale and where we need the soil to be for specific plants. Some plants prefer alkaline and some like tomatoes like acidic soil.  We learned what materials give the soil more acid and what gives more alkaline. sulfur and gypsum gives acidity to the soil and ash and lime gives alkaline.
