Hi Everyone,

Because of the inspiration I got from reading your site this year I started my own Hugelkultur beds, holes, and tubs!
Been having the best garden yet at my house because of it.
So thanks all.

I've observed, quite unexpectedly, that plants over logs placed vertically in the beds don't wilt. Whereas plants over logs placed horizontally do wilt as normal plants do in heat and sun.

At this blogspot, just created, I outlined these observations.

Anyone else notice this?

Thanks again for this site all.

While reading through the extensive HK thread in this forum I came across a reference to vertical vs. horizontal logs. One hypothesis was that vertical logs would act like straws for the plants. Perhaps this is in fact true!
