    The PH of the compost I use is around 7.5 so hopefully the ph will begin to rise quickly.

    I didn't see Fe on your list. Acid soils have trouble with Fe. Try some Milorganite or you can get fancy and do an Ironite spray. :)

    Alkaline soils tend to hold onto the Iron, not acidic from what I recall.

    The more acidic the less available, many nutrients become, Fe in particular.
