The First Church of Mulch

It is a faith of small, consistent miracles, damp soil, and hard work.

Also worms. Worms are in there somehow. We haven't worked all the details out yet.

Nah, I wouldn't. The science seems to be that yes, possibly there is a smidgeon less available nitrogen, but it's a minimal issue. I, too, have the slightly-less-productive-over-time veggie garden, and I didn't wood mulch the veggie garden at all until last year.

Micronutrients I think are the issue. I gotta throw down more bat guano and see what happens...

(Meanwhile, I should add, the non-veggie sections that I DO mulch are more and more wildly productive every year. I think veggies just exhaust the dirt.)
