I just want to mention that we often talk about deficiecies when looking at soil tests. The other reason to analyse soil is to look for excesses. I recently saw a soil test that was ecessively high in pottassium(600+ppm), phosphorus(600+ppm) and manganese(250+ppm) but extremely low in calcium(1000 ppm). I only mention this because I think one is working blindly without a soil tests. It may be the most important step in growing a giant. The soil that I'm discussing grew a 2000 plus pound pumpkin in 2023! The soil test in the picture is a random test to grab your attention (not the one I'm discussing).
