It appears that fusarium wilt has struck my three hugels with dying tomato plants and under performing pepper plants. The sweet potatoes, on the other hand are acting like kudzu, gleefully sending vines out in all directions. I've seen a few articles about using Brassica species, such as a mustard cover crop to fumigate the soil, and was wondering if anyone has any experience with that. The articles speak of mowing and disking the mustard plants in, which, of course, would have to be adapted on a hugelbed.
