Hugelkultur Update

The first douglas fir hugelkultur bed is done and planted.  It took a lot more wood (and time) than I expected, but hopefully it provides many years of service.  There won’t be time to get the hardwood bed installed for planting this summer, but hopefully it will be ready before the winter rains start.

hugelkulturWe also built smaller beds in two of the corners.  One will be for asparagus and one for rhubarb.  They will eventually serve as nursery sites to harvest plants to bring out to the orchard.
