Now that little tid-bit is fascinating and useful. I missed i in the video, but I assume (now) that the instructions called for distilled water? Certainly puts things in a different light.

It doesn't mention distilled water until it talked about rinsing dirty strips to make them readable. And then again later on.

So from your reading, which is 'correct' distilled or not? Seems to make a big difference and I am thinking you don't want the PH of the water affecting your readings. I'll be interested to hear the full details when we finally meet in a few days. ;D ;D

:D That is EXACTLY the impression I was was getting as you read it on the video! Glad it was just a PH test kit and not the real thing. Like directions we got from one of my wife's girl friends decades ago to find their new house "two blocks before the old maple on the right, make a left..." (They got worse after that.)

Here is what I was able to do with a landscape rake on some of the newly mulched areas.

I went to a "how to field the deer class". Was a couple hours. Had one guy that said, he would scatter the seeds than drive over it with his four wheeler to "pack" down the seeds into the ground. Worked better than a special roller he bought to do the same thing.
have fun!!!

@Jeff you can check your ph on just pure distilled and i think it should read 7.  you can check the other water and see what it is.  sort of a control.
