Today I sowed fruit and vegetable seed in the hugelkultur garden mounds after layering them with compost and garden soil. Three of the hugelkultur mounds have been disassembled so to speak. I have removed the remaining wood from the mounds to have a square space among the mounds to till. I noticed for years of using the mounds, that the tomatoes and peppers don't prefer the hugelkultur mounds. I believe this to be because of the moisture in the mounds. So I have taken out some of the mounds and shoveled the area to begin tilling in the square areas you see in the picture below. I have tomatoes I will transplant in one of these areas after tilling. In the second square space, I will sow watermelon, cantaloupe or other melons here.
Below is a garden layout of the seeds I sowed today and what I will be sowing and transplanting in other areas of the garden..
