Hi everybody.

I'm doing a roof in one village, about 25 miles from me. And on the way downhill,, what do i see? This!

Well, spoke a bit about it.

She says, that without a single droplet for four months, her plants get hydric stress. And go into seeding. So that's why she has watering lines. She has dug the water ponds herself all by hand, with her bloke. She's started her huggels with cardboard, wood and earth. All by hand too

The earth below, is prety much like my place, old bottom of a glaciary lake. And it seeps the water very fast. I said that she could have dug a bit before making her huggels. But she replied that by hand it was not an option. I might be luck├žier than her, as i discovered shale clay about 1m down below my land. So i know i have the option to do digged huggels.

Here's her facebook, she said i could share it.


I''ll send her the discussion here.

It was the first time i've seen a huggel upclose, and not an accidental one.
