Hoogle Kulture: Onions
We discovered Hooglekulture couple of years back and have been fascinated by its possibilities. According to one definition, “Hugelkultur is nothing more than making raised garden beds filled with rotten wood.” These are our second and third sets of HK beds.
We did not want to wait for the decomposing of the wood before planting and planted 7 kilos of small onions (shallots) on it. Since we did not want to wait, we are watering it everyday – what an irony as HK is meant to eliminate daily irrigation.
