soil test results

My soil test results came back. (Fast!) I can take it easy next year. All I need to add is nitrogen. Everything else is pretty high. I guess my organic matter is very high at 12.5% (4-10% is optimum). I don't even need to add lime.

Details: pH 6.6, buffer pH 6.7, nitrogen 22 ppm, organic matter 12.5%, phosphorus 33 ppm, poatssium 263 ppm, calcium 2292 ppm, magnesium 231 ppm, cation exchange capacity 21.5 Meq/100g, % base saturation K 4% Mg 11.2% Ca 67.4%, micronutrient levels all normal, lead (estimated total) 246 ppm (low).
