N/C Ratio example

here is a pic from earlier this summer where i'd planted peas into a garden where one side was prepared by mixing in plenty of wood chips and the other side had the same treatment except i added a few inches of soil on top of that where there was no added wood chips.

the plants to the left are obviously struggling (about a month later they caught up).
there were beets planted in this same garden and they took all summer to get big enough to pick, but they were quite large when we finally got around to it.
a few volunteer squash were left to grow, they also took most of the summer to put on one fruit each.
not that i'm surprised by any of this, it was just something to try and watch what happened. :)
i planted a second round of peas in the middle when the first round of peas got picked. just to cover it and keep the weeds from having an easy start. they did well enough, but i think the chipmunk pretty much got anything that was large enough to eat in a pod.

the ones on the left were planted in the soil with wood chips mixed throughout the soil. the peas on the right were on top of the same mix with a few inches of added soil that did not contain wood chips.
