Your best soils have an OM '%' of around 7.5% ,,, or more... IMO, if the OM is high enough it doesn't really what your soil's 'Texture' consists of... your plants will be doing excellently... Agree or not,, it's JMO...
Ok so first things first, I guess I need to get my soil tested, and take it from there. I'll be back with the results.
