Here's a quick video I shot of what my garden is doing for me. My Hazelip style beds are in their first season, so I expect that fertility/production will go up in the future and weeding will go down.

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.

Hi Dave (thanks alex),
Nice looking. I'm curious about both the soil on rocks technique and the spacing between plants that you are using.

-Won't the soil leak into the rocks?

-Is there some advantage to your spacing.

good luck.
William

That is Dave's video I was just responding to it. He is in his in his first season and
has room to grow his perennial plants and they will gobble space as time goes on

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.
 
I didn't do it. You can't prove it. Nobody saw me. The sheep are lying! This tiny ad is my witness!
