HI Steemers!
I have been away for a few weeks but pleased now to be back and updating on my latest Hügelkultur garden. This raised bed is a kind of oval shape about 3 metres by 2.5 metres and although not completely full of produce right now has a lot of yummy veg thriving in it. The middle area will fill up with basil and parsley over the coming weeks as the seeds lying in that area will soon sprout and grow up. I can't wait to see what it will look like 2 months from now.

This took a lot of work to make and fill the bed - a lot of wood chunks, sticks and branches, barley straw, composted garden and kitchen waste and LOVE went into its construction but I couldn't be happier with the results.
A lot of what is growing is from last seasons wild spread seeds - onions, leeks, lettuce, jalepeno, nettle, borage, mint, basil,radish, kale, spinach, celery and tomatoes was left to go to seed and sowed itself with none of my help. A sort of experiment you could say. I don't have a huge amount of time for gardening as my narration work takes up a big chunk of my time so I like no dig, no sow type gardening whenever possible.
I did tease out and replant a bunch of the celery to spread them out but the rest I have left to see just what it can do naturally.

I do have other beds and areas of the garden that are more orderly but this mound is an experiment in progress and I am loving it!
