Hugel raised bed stuff still needs a lot of filling hopefully I can get some growing under way next season... I have all the logs I need now and I managed to buy a couple of pallets of old strawberry grow bags from a local strawberry farmer, These bags are filled with Irish pete and what’s left of the old strawberry plant and root system. I managed to save some of the plants and transplant them. Much more filling to be done though.

Thanks for sharing your hugel bed - what do you plan to plant in it once it is finished?

Oh I plan to plant a whole load of things I get the kids involved too so they can choose some stuff  I may plant early potatoes in one half the first year and see how that works out for the soil.

Awesome - make sure to post some pics once it is up and growing my son is still to young to do much but he does help me harvest a bit. He is only 16 months old.
