In my raised bed garden, nitrogen tests too high. I have had problems with seeds not sprouting and transplants dying for no apparent reason. Some transplants' leaves are curling. Is high nitorgen my cause, how do I lower it.

The easiest way to lower the nitrogen level in your garden is to add sawdust or fresh wood chips. These use nitrogen as they decompose and should bring the nitrogen level down in the soil. I'd incorporate sawdust by spreading an inch or two over the entire bed and mixing it in with the soil.
