Hi Daniel and welcome to Permies! I'm rather new here also, but have learned a lot in my short stay so far. Tell us a bit about yourself...where you live...what you are growing...how you are growing it.....or...what is it you would like to learn. There are a lot of great folks on this forum with fantastic knowledge who are willing to reach out and help us new guys on the block.

Thanks for the reply Jim Guinn,
I'm in South Alabama very close to the Gulf. In my last few (10) years I've been slowly studying on different ways to plant, grow & harvest items to substain a family to setting up a small market. Since my wife's passing I was able to owner finance a small 8.375 acre partial where I'm currently establishing my farm. It's been troublesome of course to start from scratch and working 5-7 days full time and the needed time to do the yard/farming. Since then I've pondered on doing raised beds that I was successful doing prier to moving here, learning composting and hands on success there I've been wanting to do them again and stop having to do the traditional tilling and mounding, ( I really hate that approach myself). So seeing this Hudgelkulter page it gave me an idea, ( finally after 2 years of thinking hard on this), combinding Hudgelkulter/raised beds/Green House has really got my attention now. I'm also building or should saw improving a small pond in the bottom of my 6 acre field to support my construction when completed. Trees, lots of field grass, and I've got chickens and rabbit so far. Looking to have goats, cows, and a few more birds and ducks. Love this blog, thanks.

Sounds like a wonderful project.
I would say do 50% regular and 50% the mew hybrid that you have invented.
I know that bio-char and hugelculture can be iffy the 1st year if not done right, plus it is always nice to have a control group/know safe even if less optimized point.
