One year later, the pile of soil/mulch has composted nicely and the weeds are enjoying it very much. I surrounded the pile with 5 bucket gardens growing corn three plants each which rooted
through the holes in the buckets in the mulch soil mixture. What a mistake!

I have never had voles and it was a fiasco. They came from all over and knocked the corn over and were making holes next to the corn debris piles so they didn't have far to come out to eat.

I will seed over with grass and not plant in this area near my main vegetable garden again.
If circumstances had been different, I think the amendment would have been a successful area for a new garden. The soil was nice and loose, and tall grassy weeds loved it.
