We’re finally settling in to our new cabin, and have begun homesteading! One of our first priorities this spring was to construct a vegetable garden. Hoping to work in harmony with nature, we decided to delve into the world of Permaculture, and built our very first Hugelkultur mound! So what’s Hugelkultur? Well, we’ll show you! 🙂 Video Rating: / 5 Related PostsBest Wind & Sun Protection in NO TILL Homesteading Vegetable Gardening for beginners 101True NO TILL Homesteading Organic Vegetable Gardening with mulch for beginners 101.

    Does the decaying wood not drain the soil of something? Also, do you if you have to cover it with something right away, what do you plant if you are making it for later?

    Very nice! You guys have plenty of land. You should do 2 or 3 methods to compare wish one yields the best results for next year harvest like (hugel, b2eden and raised bed). You already have the hugel; b2eden can be done with forest dry leaves from autumn and woodchips from a tree company or county; raise beds can be set any time) and you're in time to set the b2eden. I hope you take our suggestion. Thanks

    Hey, I just stumbled upon your channel. Very nice to see you have a piece of land to learn more about growing your own food. I'm working on my first year of Back To Eden method myself after growing organically for a few decades in my urban backyard. I've never tried Hugelkultur. I hope to see your updates.

    Great job constructing your hugelkultur and editing your video. Hugels are one of my favorite ways to grow food utilizing the natural materials collected on site. Best wishes!

    Your tractor is AWESOME! The build up was really cool too 🙂 Though she may be small, she'll still save you guys lots of manual labor. Looking forward to future vids and updates about this style of gardening. Thanks for the videos!
