But iv'e also heard that it contains salt and can kill earthworms in your garden. Would like to get your guys opinion on what you think? Has anyone been trying this for years, if so what were your results? Is it long term damaging to the soil because of the salt?
Interested in what your guys feedback.

5 gallons over 50 sq ft, wow that's a lot of fertilizer all at once.
Have you ever been able to add "too much" and seen plants die back b/c of too much fertilizer?
I'd also noticed that just applying this to a garden with clay soil, low organic matter the effect didn't last long 1-2 weeks.
This year though on a hugelkultur bed I apply ~10cups on 15 sq ft. and it is good enough for about a month (squash plants).
I apply it directly and then just hose it in for a half a minute.
