So my soil is all hard clay, almost no top soil and it's all turning into desert because of the lack of rain.
I start to dig like crazy last year, forgive me for not following the real Hugelkultur from Sepp , here's one example, it was dug in 5 of January 2012
Location: Country: Portugal. City: Tomar

I already have more like that one, the place is sort of a food forest, there are physalis, grapes, apples, cherry, plums, peaches, olives, gojis, quince, aromatic plants, loquats, Jerusalem artichokes, pomegrantes, apricot, mulberry, oranges ...
There's also a lake I made with 6 frogs and at least 1 tree frog near by, planted Watercress on it and aquatic plants (they keep the water from going bad and without algae), the frogs keep some of the pest controlled, it also has some dragonflies and their nymphs on the water controlling the mosquito larvae.
