Can I borrow you for 2018?
I think this has given me some motivation to get on with things this coming year.
I already have a couple of hugelculture beds that I had to make about four years ago as I had so much wood laying around from when my birch trees was cut down.
when the snow disappears from my yard I will investigate to see how much the wood has rotted down etc. I do know that there are lots of growth coming from that area.
A couple of years ago I had masses of tomatoes harvested from a few plants, most have been eaten, frozen, dried etc., but this year I will try roasting them before further processing and they sound much more tasty roasted first. I will also look out for those Box Car Willie tomato seeds.
Thanks for all the words and photos, I have really enjoyed your year. Kelejan
Yes you can borrow me for 2018 and Thank you, I'm just glad its finished so I can start my even "Longer" winded SUGA 2018.
Hopefully my Hugel beds will do even better for 2018, a few are on their 3rd season and a few will be on their 2nd season.
My 2018 year will be my last shebang, I'm gonna dial it back a bit for 2019.
Keep us posted on the Hugelkultur beds, I'm curious to see whats going on.
The roasted tomatoes are definitely a good way to utilize those maters.
I was quite impressed with the Box Car Willies, not one split and they were first on and last off, the flavor and size are also pretty good.The BCW earned a permanent residence in my garden.
