I'm a little behind Alex up here in North Idaho!
Dave it looks like you are going to have a wonderland of food there. It
should just get better and better as time goes on. The amount of space
you have and the mulch resources close by looks like an ideal place to
garden with this method successfully. Keep us up to date as it develops.
The stones are there basically to act as a thermal mass. I'm hoping that over time a lot of soil, mulch and other organic matter will wash down in, and I'll be able to stuff some small herbs and what not in there. Much of the spacing is just what decided to grow, I broadcast a bunch of random seed on the mounds as I built them. Some of the bare spots are where transplants didn't take, and Alex is right on the perennial stuff, I'm leaving space for it to fill in over time, and planting some annuals/cover crops in the mean time. Thanks for the comments though guys I appreciate the feedback.
