I'd contact the master gardeners in your area. A lot of them are really into that kind of stuff.
Good thing you mentioned it. I need to find a kit to check my vegetable garden soil this year.
I've added tremendous amounts of organic matter to the clay - its so good in quality, that this spring, I could thrust a shovel blade below the surface with my arms alone. That's only 2 years from the first turning and ammendment.
But so far, I have done no test for acidity or alkalinity - gotta know the score this year.
I am a firm believer now in double digging. Searches turn up a lot of sites to read on it. We did a promo for it on our own advice page, seeing how good the results are.
