I am so impressed! I love how you've planned it out and then implemented it. Congrats on your successes so far!

Dependant upon many factors. I recently dug up (grass covered clay soil) to a depth of 2feet, 3" x 5" and it took me about four hours. Another, smaller (2ft deep x 2ft wide x 4ft long) hugel bed took me an hour. However that soil was the previous location of my compost and was much easier to dig.

So, some variables: your labour rate, the compaction of the soil, how wet/heavy the soil is, how many rocks/roots etc you encounter....Good luck
