Trees, Corn and Hugelkultur

The boys are becoming rather daring with their tree climbing. That's Isaac at the top and Fintan lower down. All Fintan wants to do is play outside.

We have corn planted on the right. The bed on the left is us attemping a hugelkultur bed to plant the boy's pumpkins in. I assume the vines will spread into the corn and help mulch the ground. I do plan on adding a straw mulch to the corn though. The hugelkultur was kind of spur of the moment but we'll see how it goes! It needs a little more work but I am not real particular about it. It is layers of old and new branches, pinecones, dirt, weeds and grass that had been in the compost pile and aged manure.
