Hi,
I just wrote a detailed blogpost on building my first hugelbeds: http://www.nordicminifarm.com/2013/08/building-hugelkultur-raised-beds/.
They were actually the very first project I completed on the field I bought next to our house, which I'm slowly turning from cropland into a permaculture system. The build was interesting and backbreaking, without earth moving equipment.
In one of the more recent podcasts, Paul mentioned that Sepp (or was it Josef?) pointed out that there was too much wood and too little earth in the illustrations of hugelbeds on richsoil.com. He said it takes more earth, even at the first stage. I only got that info after I had built mine, but I'll definitely keep that in mind when I build more of these :)


Cheers,
-Claude
 
Now I am super curious what sports would be like if we allowed drugs and tiny ads.
