Off the side of the house we have an annual vegetable garden. Two years ago this was typical suburban lawn. I attached soil test below. Overall I'm surprised that it isn't that terrible. The ratios seem to be a concern though especially phosphorous to potassium. Other comments in the report was that sample was low in organic matter and nitrogen. I have some worm casting and small amount of compost I just started (trying 18 day hot method). This year I'm trying square foot garden method so I already planted and seedlings are coming up. I did sow some vetch that hopefully the birds haven't got. Any help on interpreting or fixing potential issue is greatly appreciated. Thanks, Aaron
