In this video, Trish shows our hugelkultur swales beds, and how she manages them as the woody material starts breaking down, creating empty pockets in the bed.

It was wonderful to see this in action, in moving pictures, for real. Sometimes there is nothing like a video to give one a true picture of what is going on & what the soil looks like as a shovel goes into it & as it falls from the shovel (& Dave's hands Smiling ).
Thanks y'all.
I am a strong believer in the simple fact is that what matters in this life is how we treat others. I think that's what living is all about. Not what I've done in my life but how I've treated others.

Laughter is good for the body & the soul.
