Hugels filled with sod tend to keep there size and shape more than the wood-filled kind. Hugels and terraces we made filled with SOD in Duluth, Minnesota. We're planning a huge transformation for spring. Would anyone be interested in attending if Sepp came?

Looks good Chad, Hay that wouldn't happen to be a Spartan camper would it? How do you like your lodge? I have a lodge too.

Really interesting site, I like the structures and those big rocks! Looking forward to seeing it next year when it's growing.

Hi Wyomiles, it's actually a 1954 Yellowstone with a 1969 Concord peeking around the side of the tipi. I love those vintage campers.

Hi Tyler, the Finnish kids from about a hundred years ago must have been rolling in their grave when they saw us hauling all the rocks back into the pasture. I also can't wait to see it fill up with life.

If Sepp comes, I would make the drive up. You aren't far from me.
