Behold, the mighty hugelkultur. It’s a massive pile of composting material, built in layers, to provide a very productive vegetable bed in a fairly small space.
This huge pile of crap is built in layers. First, dig a hole.
Fill this hole with large lumps of wood, thick branches, and bits of cardboard.
Once the mound is as high as you can easily reach, top with a thick layer of mushroom compost (this is basically second-hand crap, it’s the manure left over from mushroom farming.)
And there you have it. A lovely huge pile of compost and manure to grow vegetables. Hurrah for the hugel, let’s hope it works out ok 🤞
