Too many leaves in raised bed?
I built a small raised bed last fall 3' deep and filled it halfway up with finely shredded leaves.
Then I mixed in some old potting soil and finished compost. Afterwards I planted onions and they are doing very good.
Now it is time to plant tomatoes. I knew that it wouldn't get hot but I expected to get more breakdown on the leaves.
I dug two holes deep enough to bury the toms and it is mostly leaves not broken down at all. They are loose and moist even though we haven't had any rain lately.
Should I dig the holes out larger and put in potting soil or topsoil? Or just use enough to cover the plants? Or just not use it this year?
