Thank you and God bless you, too.
This is the perfect method for that 'back 40' piece of land. There will be gourds galore! And corn in the future.

Since reading about this last spring in the hugelkultur forum, I use this method with all my new beds now, in a modified form. I plant flowers, not veggies, and I frame the beds with landscape timbers, then fill with whatever wood I can find, let it sit for 6-9 months before filling in with dirt, etc. In the meantime, I'll add grass clippings, kitchen scraps, etc. to make the worms and microbes happy. I've built 2 beds this way so far, and have 2 more planned for this year. Thumbs up
