Elm mulch in soil

Posted 1971 days ago

Hi all,
First time posting, I've recently cut down a large elm tree to make way for a vegetable garden. I've ground the stump out, which has left a large amount of fine mulch. Is it a good idea to mix this mulch in with the dirt and plant straight into it?
Wondering if this will cause high soil temperatures as the elm mulch breaks down?
