Headless no more!

If one of my hugel beds seems to have disappeared, another I built more recently certainly hasn’t. Besides, it is clearly a good place to grow, although whether that is because of the wood or just what would be happening without it I wouldn’t like to say.


One thing is for certain: the hugel bed has not been detrimental to the growth of the tomato plant which lost its main shoot while it was hardening off. As you can see in the above photo, it has in fact become quite bushy.

Elsewhere, the tomato plants are doing well, too. There are even tomatoes already ripening on the vine, so we could well be eating them before the end of the month. Tomatoes in July would be a pleasant gift from the garden indeed.

About Helen

I have always been interesting in living a more environmentally friendly lifestyle and used to do what I could. Now, I have come to realise that we have reached such a point in terms of environmental degradation that it is more important - perhaps - to focus on building resilience. I therefore do as much as I can to reuse, grow my own and encourage a supportive community, for example. I also keep reading and learning all the time.
