Great time for an Alaska trip. Save travels.

Hope you had a great time. I really liked Alaska. Spent my time along the Inside Passage though.

With the rototiller: I mixed in 8 cu.ft. of decomposed granite sand, 2 cubic feet of Canadian Peat Moss, and 2.5 cu.ft. of Sunshine General Purpose Soil. The planting hole has about 1 cu.yd. (27 cu.ft.) volume, so that's just short of a 50/50 mix with the native soil.

Refresh my memory, what is your native soil? I do get the Peat Moss and the General Purpose Soil, but DG? I put DG in my horses coral to prevent it from being muddy. We put it on the dirt road to the ranch for the same reason and it makes it rock hard. But for drainage (even in my horse coral) I rather use river sand.

In that location it's 100 years of agriculture residue (about 6 inches) on top of a million years of calcified sands.

The DG is mostly medium grain sands which were used to fill in the rear half of my yard. Nowadays I'm building planter beds there, so I excavated a bit and used it for these planting holes. If I wanted more, I'd order some horticultural sand from A-1 soils (near you).
