La Saladou

Making raised beds


Yesterday in the pouring rain in the Netherlands, today in a T-shirt in the sun on Saladou! We started with the building of three test-hugels (raised beds) next to where next month the poly tunnel will be built. A pile of tree trunks and branches on the bottom, then a layer of manure mixed with straw and humus as toplayer. During the building the wood was sprayed with water.

1. Stems and branches collected and manure fetched at neighbor farmer mr Taillant

2. Coarse fresh manure and older more fine manure on top…

3. Tomorrow the top humus layer!
