Well I know for a fact that the dirt around here is very clayey.... almost pure clay tbh haha.
I didn't plan on growing monsters to be honest, because the ground around here is so hard to dig into, all the roots, and clay, I just planned on doing about 3 gallon hole for each plant. Yes I know this isn't a lot because a cubic foot has about 4 gallons in it.
I plan on doing around 25-30 plants, but we've started germinating so many random seeds from mids-heads we may get up into 70 plants. That's a ton of holes, so I figured 3 gallon hole for each plant would suffice for my intentions of 2-3 ounces per plant.
The mix I plan to use is something like, a tbsp of Dolomitic lime, for PH Stabilization, 1 gallon of perlite, 1 gallon of verm, 1 gallon of MG soil(haha), and some Geo Humus. The guy at the store told me about the Geo Humus saying it works like water crystals.
What do you all think of this, if I'm not trying for max yield as I would get with a huge hole.
