Will is starting to clear pasture on our new forty acres — 2 Comments

  1. Jay,

    I’m not so thrilled with hugel kultur; once the branches and stumps start to rot down, the dirt over them (the mounds) start to cave in and become “lumpy” so that growing or using a chicken tractor on them is very difficult. Sounded like a good idea, but I’m not sold.
    We’re going to let our mounds rot down naturally, then work them into the soil, leaving a flat surface that can be utilized easily.


  2. I’ve been researching hugelkultur today & I’m looking at all the branches left from making firewood & thinking I wished I lived closer!
