Hugelkuture follow-up, aka part 2

Here is the hugelkulture right before planting. See past blog posts for more info. I filled this area against the retaining wall with half rotted logs, then a layer of sticks, then a layer of foodscraps. Then my wonderful husband topped it off with a home-made mix of soil and compost from the huge pile we had in the backyard. That pile was made from refuse from my days as a personal gardener/landscaper. I am going to top the retaining wall with flat limestone field stone. I am planting it with roses and herbs since it is near our kitchen. More to come!
