How to Amend Soil to Grow Bell Peppers

Anonymous added on June 4, 2011 | Answered

I had my soil tested. The pH is at 8. 0, so it's very alkaline. I have lettuce, cucumbers and many types of bell peppers growing (orange, yellow, red). What can I do to amend the soil to make sure the peppers grow? Should I add some type of compost? I've read elemental sulfur (I think) helps but that won't affect the soil this year (very slow change, I believe). Help!
