Another one (in English) of Sepp explaining hugelkultures in his own words.
(You'll need to scroll down towards mid page to get to his Hugel article):

thanks for the Permaculture magazine article - I love that mag, by the way, and decided to order it after listening to Paul interviewing Maddy.
And after reading Sepps book, i got intrigued with Hugel kultur and have 3 kind of going. The first one ended up a hybrid of straw bale and hugel, the second one is Hugel all the way and doing great - even though it took me forever to finish. Sepp is not kidding that it takes a lot longer when you do it all by hand. Even the piling of logs and branches. I pile it all up, water it down nicely, had to go off do other things (like work), come back and the darn thing shrank a bunch. So, I pile on more branches, water them down and...... repeat....and again. i did that several times before I decided to heck with it, its time to pile on compost and soil - no sod for me. Only Bermuda grass - my enemy. Dug down and around the bed very carefully removing every bit of it....
With the 3rd one, I got smarter. I founded an organic edibles garden club and scheduled a workday That way, I only had to supervise and we got it piled pretty high....

well, the pics come up in opposite order and the descriptions are not showing. The last picture is the second hugel I build. It is actually along the property line and I planted blueberries on one side to create an edible fence. The middle is the first hugel a couple of month later - potatoes are really loving it in there. The third is the workday result. We dug about a foot down......
 
And tomorrow is the circus! We can go to the circus! I love the circus! We can take this tiny ad:
