Are you far enough south that you don't have to put gravel in the hole underneath the post and concrete, for the sake of water freezing under it?

I was skeptical of the idea at first, but for my most recent posts in the garden, I haven't bothered even mixing the quikrete. I just dump the dry stuff in the hole and add water on top. It's the lazy man's way, but it works, at least in my damp clay soil.
