Brand new hugel bed, mandala style. Should be ready for planting come spring, the last layer will be shredded leaves once they fall. Comments, questions, and inputs are welcome! Mostly just wanted to share my creation Thanks for looking

Is this your first? I am currently building my first, and kinda winging it. Love the layout.

It is not the first I've constructed, but it will be the first one I'll plant and see develop. Living on a large Iowa farm I have a lot of material to work with and I've bought the place so I'll be here till I die probably lol. I have strawberries planted in the center, and on the outside I plan to plant annual vegetables. I hope the strawberries will expand to the outer row in the second and third year and then it will be exclusively strawberrys till they lose their virility.

Cannot wait to see it progress. What crops do you have in mind?

I love the way it looks. Just so organic (no pun).
 
I miss the old days when I would think up a sinister scheme for world domination and you would show a little emotional support. So just look at this tiny ad:
