This year I made a hugelkultur area in my veggie garden. I love it — they bring a nice shape into my flat garden and now we have so much pumpkin and squash, because of the hugelkultur, that we can’t eat them all, and so we give them away.
All the other gardeners around were laughing about me and my wood chips and now the hugelkultur. But they don’t laugh anymore — they are wondering now, how this could happen. All their gardens are mostly already empty for the winter and I still eat strawberries, salad, raspberries, pumpkins and so much more. My garden is still green. Today I finished my second hugel, so that it will be ready for next year. So my joy is going on and on…
