Good morning friends! I wanted to pass along something I discovered over the past year. For the past few years I’ve piled copious amounts of grass clippings and leaves into my garden beds. This year I was able to get a large amount of free local wood chips from a friend. Once I ran out of planned uses for the chips I started mixing them into my garden topper mix. The results amazed me. In a few weeks I had a crazy amount of worms living under the mix. The soil was transformed overnight! Some of these were new beds that I was trying to prepare for the 2020 season but were able to use them this year. The only downside was varmints. Some of the beds are near the woods and I guess a tasty worm meal was on the menu for some creatures. I had to replant one particular bed four times. When I would go out in the morning it looked like someone had dug everything up! Other beds had to be transplanted a couple times as well.
Anyway, I’ve been here five years and I’ve never had yields like this year. It was also done with the least amount of effort. Hope this helps someone out next planting season. Scott
