Was like hydroponics in chips! After a while i just dug down they can get some soil contact- and they went hog wild. The only problem I had was they were very late as the mulch takes a month to warm up. But they lasted a month longer too! for the suggestion about legumes in chips, I have found none that grow in chips except vetch, and that has its own issues. Sesbania worked too but gracious it gets big.

Thank you for sharing this. I had read where you mentioned vitamins before. That got me curious and prompted me to read more on this. I had found an interesting article in MEN called Vitamins For Vegetables, about an 11 y.o. boy who conducted an experiment with vitamins A, C, E, B1, B5, B12 and B100. I'll have to find that one again.
I plan on trying this myself. I'm also curious about giving aspirin to sick plants.
