Soil Testing Kit - Recommendations

Brand new to the group. During the past couple of months I have watched and read The Crash Course. And read Prosper.

I want to, at least on a very small scale, try to grow some of our own food. I want to start by testing my soil.

Can anyone recommend and relatively inexpensive, relatively easy to use, soil testing kit?

Thanks,

PJL

Thank You

My family and I are interested in buying land in CO to gradually begin the process toward a more sustainable and resilient lifestyle.  Does anyone have any input on the best places to look for land in like-minded communities?

Viability of CSA models in bad times

My wife and I are embarking on a small farming adventure.  We have several acres of fruit trees and garden space we are working on building into a small organic, permaculture based, market farm.  We are both working full time jobs that pay well and are slowly buying equipment and installing fencing and irrigation and starting a small food forest.
