Hugelkultur

The cabin field, next to the main house field, is an old vineyard and clay -really deep clay.  It’s a quagmire when it rains and concrete in the sun.  It would take a lot of work to make beds and that’s not what we want.  So we’ve gone for hugelkultur.  This way we get to use the rotten wood from the house that we’ve half-demolished, the cardboard and all the packing from the cabin and it will also be our compost heap.
