Today, May 4, 2014 has been one month since I started the hugelpot experiment. They have not been given any supplemental watering. While our state has had a decent amount of rain, my particular area has not had an overabundance of it. So far the pots are doing well:

I planted a hugel pot yesterday. I soaked a chunk of punky wood and stuck it at the bottom of as pretty big pot. This is the chunk soaking.
