I had never heard of a hugelkultur before finding permies.com and want to thank Paul for all the wonderful information. We dropped a tree 4 years ago and I created this hugelkultur in my small backyard garden. Here are some photos I took today (May 7, 2018) of the strawberry plants that I planted the first year but which took until this year to really take off. Looking forward to some good eating. Also a photo of the front gate from last year's garden. I've been gardening for 45 years and am still learning something new every season. Love these forums.
Yum, Love strawberries grown at home, much better flavor than store bought. Good looking hugel too. (we have one that grows our Egyptian Walking Onions and Pumpkins and watermelons.
We are in the process of building another strawberry bed.
We love visitors, that's why we live in a secluded cabin deep in the woods. "Buzzard's Roost (Asnikiye Heca) Farm." Promoting permaculture to save our planet. https://permies.com/wiki/redhawk-soil

Thanks Bryant. Love the name of those onions.... :}. I'm thinking about planting some watermelon seeds on the hugelkultur also and let them meander through the strawberry patch since they will come in after the strawberries are picked.
