Hügelkultur Update

Our first hügelkultur is now about eight weeks old. It has grown massively, especially considering that everything was started from seed. We have kale, lettuces, beans, pumpkins, cucumbers, Swiss chard, cilantro, dill, fennel, green onions, cabbages, basil, and peppermint. The beauty of the hügelkultur is that it grows in a tall mound, actually doubling or tripling our space. Right now we only water every four days to conserve water. Next year when it is more established we hope to water even less (or, dare I say, not at all). Fingers crossed folks.
