I am currently digging three small scale Huguls in my backyard, and I'm somewhat in a hurry to get them ready before spring, and I will be making three more in the sideyard so I have a bit of a time limit. I'm thinking that the deeper the are the more water they will be able to reserve for the Texas dry season, as the logs will be buried deeper, currently mine are at eighteen inches, not sure on how many cenitmeters that is, and I'm a bit nervous to start the log process if it won't be deep enough. I plan to start planting this spring, which is a bit hurried, I did read that Hugul's get better as time passes, and that they are recommended to have a cover crop that fixes nitrogen for the first year, but like I mentioned in my previous post, I just moved back to Texas, and I'm not too keen on waiting an entire year to plant, especially considering I may not stay here a long time. So any advice would be appreciated in managing a new hugul to give it the best chance of success, maybe adding a lot of nitrogen as I'm currently lacking that as well, I've been here a little more than a week and haven't accumulated very many scraps, and being winter, there isn't a lot of greenery to bury along with the logs, I've read that bloodmeal is good, and maybe I'll splurge and buy some rock dust as well. Like I said, I'm very amateurish and if any of you beautiful, experienced people out there have any wisdom to share, I will love you for it! Thank you for your time
