Cool blog!

Didn't go go through all of it, but I like the pics! I really like the archway you made out of logs that's a nice touch.

Thanks for sharing!

Looks like the original blog was in 2009? So how has it worked the past seasons? Were you able to forgo watering?

I posted the blog on 5/09/2012 but the date stamp reads 2012/05/09 . We actually finished the hugle in march of this year. We have had some amazing success with it so far, and IMO two very important observations.

1. No Dikons in the bed! We have harvested radishes/ radish greens to the point that we are sick of them. They also leave huge holes and tear up anything around them (seems like a no brainer, but for some reason we didn't think of that *face palm*)

2. Go easy on the lettuce! We tossed out ridiculous amounts of greens on the hugle and things are so crowded that a lot of it rots at the base before we can harvest. (And it is harvested almost daily)

Besides those two things, I would have to say that huglekultur is my favorite type of garden bed! I have learned so much about micro climates and various other little things.....I'm just floored by how much I thought knew, that has been proven false by this thing! I have decided to throw out everything that I have "learned" over the years and totally start over with nothing more then a curious sense of adventure and copious amounts of OBSERVATION.

I would also like to thank the mighty, the glorious, the amazing......Paul Wheaton for doing what he does and giving us this great place to connect/share/grow together.
