Huglekultur

Logs and branches form the foundation

The raised bed I’m constructing in my front yard is called a huglekultur. The foundation is made up of  logs and branches.

The branches are covered with leaves and straw.

Next I’ll add soil and manure. Since I’m building this  during the winter, I’ll plant  some winter peas for a green manure. It will be ready for planting in the spring.
