I mixed these into the soil I had in a wheelbarrow and put that on top of apple and maple wood logs at the bottom layer, and covered my mounds with a straw (brome grass) mulch. I seeded into the top of the mounds the day I mounded.
That's it, didn't change anything else, and my crops did far worse this year than last. Any suggestions would be much appreciated... What happened here?
