Thanks, Sean. I live in an area where there are literally ACRES of 
ag-tax-deferred land with rotting big hay bales on it and very little 
grain/straw grown. Yes, if I could find big bales of oat straw, I'd 
drive a few miles for it! Thanks for your insights. You know, I've 
really never mulched too heavily (although we do mulch deeply) but, 
yes, I have been afraid that I have mulched too heavily. -Allan
