MY FIRST HUGEL MOUND EVER IS FINALLY COMPLETED!!!

in #life3 years ago

This is a photo-progression of the project!


At the moment I've actually got two more started with various other ideas in mind, but this one is finished. I'll be working on putting out a video on the entire project too, but for now I'll show you the project in a series of photos. Basically, this is a way to use up wooden branches and logs, leaves, manure, and other resources and turn them into one big planting medium that'll break down over time and feed the plants for years to come. I'll explain more in the video, but the photos will give you a good idea about it. Enjoy!

MY FIRST HUGEL MOUND PHOTOS!!!

Until next time…

Looking at the photos of your garden over time, I began to wonder where you get all those rocks from.
Are they easy to find around where you live? Although it may be a problem for farming, it is a benefit in other ways. Here for example, we have to buy natural rocks every time we want to build something from them. And they are rather expensive, so often people buy the cheaper concrete stones.
Its quiet a gift from nature - too bad you cannot sell them via mail order... :)

Hard work... Always take care brother!

Oh BRILLIANT- Hugel culture is an amazing way to grow!! You will have the hugest veggies growing now!!!!! Woo hoo! This is VERY exciting.🌈❤️🦋🍀🌴

Thanks for the excitement and encouragement!

thats funny, a hugel in german is a hill,
so you are basically making a little hill here which is true...
so what are you planting on them?

On this one I planted Radishes, Carrots, Chard, Spinach, and Turnips.

That's probably super useful for people with a lot of trees on their property.

I saw a video not that long ago where these guys were just burning a HUGE pile of trees and branches about the size of a dump truck load just to get rid of it...this technique would probably be super helpful for people with that type of land. They could probably just dump their compost in it and have chickens eat from it and it would be growing vegetables in no time.

I can't really try it here though...not enough land unfortunately.

Yeah, a lot of people here just burn everything and then complain about the poor soil... too bad.

Awesome! I'm interested in watching how this progresses.
