Tomatoes, squash, okra, banana peppers, beans, beets and radishes.
Always cool to see different people trying different techniques. That’s the fun part of gardening is trying different stuff and learning new things, good or bad.

Keep us posted for sure

We did this with our raised beds a few years ago. The first year, our plants didn't grow so well. I don't know if it was the hugelkultur or something else we might have done. The second year and after was much better and I expect this year to be good as well. Either way, it saves you a lot on soil to fill the beds.

I had heard that they get better with age. Good to know that it’ll get better.

Did you use pine logs or white softwood logs ?

Hard wood and some pine. All had been down for some time.
The only thing I would worry about with the pine is soil acidification.

I’ve always heard to use species such as elm and sweet gum. Green trees would start decaying fairly quick once in contact with soil.

Poplar is good, too.
