I've been considering buying a pH meter also.

Kirby,

Since pH affects nutrient uptake it would be nice to have a heads-up on any pH problem so I could go ahead and start making plans to correct it while waiting on the soil test to come back.

Runner, just get a soil thermometer. Metal probe, with a dial thermometer on top, maybe $10 - $15. Most of them are 4" to 6" long, but I think you can go deeper if you hunt. I got most of mine as giveaways at trade shows.
