Ut, oh. Bloodmeal (or more poopy) is your friend.
Pat hit it on the head ... you have a recipe for N shortage going there. Two
thoughts come to mind.
1) the bloodmeal or additional source of N is a "quick fix" for this year
2) the N consumed by the sawdust this year will be (mostly) available next
year at which point your soil structure will also have been given a boost.
Ahhh.. that explains why they weren't threading properly; the originals
are, of course, long gone.
