A centipede on Tony’s patio.

Today is my second posting of rebuilding hugelkultur Food Ridge West — all animal habitats get a name!

Go to Hugelkultur to see a description of this European garden art.

Today’s video starts with pulling apart an old firewood pile and some critters found in that habitat.  One critter is relocated to the hugelkultur Food Ridge West.

Some images of hugelkultur.

For a detailed discussion,

clear graphics, and lots of pics of hugelkultur,

Happy hugelkultur habitat making.  See you tomorrow.
