It's been dry here, so had a chance to redo/improve some in-ground hugel holes.

This seems like it may be an interest approach for small urban gardens that cannot house a traditional hugel or even adapted for container growing. Worth exploring.

Nice work Eric! Great way to put growing mound technology into a small space. If you have leaves or other compostables don't be afraid to toss them into your holes too.
