My soil gets FYM on a three year cycle.
Ist year potatoes and FYM
2nd year peas, beans, courgettes, with blood fish and bone.
3rd year brassicas with nettle feed, or carrots parsnips, beetroot (no feed)
My compost is usually a bit chunk, so I use it for mulch around shrubs etc. You can put it in a trench for peas and beans , but its not necessary. I dont trench or double dig for anything.
Your compost heap will build up in time. Don't fret, just give it a go.
