So as discussed a wee while back in another thread, I utilised a small part sun/shade area of the back garden and built me a raised hugelkulter mound out of left over garden logs and branches (rather than cut and chuck). Covered and packed in compost and some left over soil, whacked in a few seeds / seedlings and see how it goes. Seems to be growing okay with the recent big rains really giving it a huge soaking, plus it soaks up rain run off as per the below. and now a couple of weeks post the rain and some sun it's kicking on well...even the old tree log shot out some new growth from underneath. Lettuce has come on (just now) as too the zuc's. Leeks and Strawberry's (old runners) surviving too. Anyhoo....what's Dougalkulter?? Well when I was looking at this mound the other day it reminded me of Dougal the Dog (from those old enough to remember) from the Magical Roundabout show of the early 70's. Me thinks those at the BBC who created this show grew their own mushrooms.
