I used too much malted barley (freshly ground) as top dress. It becomes concrete....but on the bright side, saw tons of baby worms. The eggs survived months sitting around in my homemade soil. The soil was mixed in December. The barley has enzymes which help soil microbes, which feeds worms, who help nutrient cycling...so says Ted hussey.
