Hugelkultur (Plants)

I've probably posted about this before, but what the heck. Gloom and doom could use a little positive news. This method of agriculture works, and one thing that I've found is so nice about it is that it is incredibly scalable. Very flexible.

One thing I've noticed just in the small piles I've built is the decreased need for watering. Daily watering in dry periods is no longer necessary. We left for nearly a week last summer when it was hitting 35C with no rain. I expected to see a wilted garden, but miraculously, everything was lush, and the rain gauge empty. And this is sandy soil that doesn't hold water. Very nice.

But, this page says it all:
