Hugelkultur works, a comparison

Here's a quick visual comparison of 2 cucumber plants, Palace Kings, that were planted at the same time.  One in a hugelhole, a hole dug about 1.5' deep and wide and then layered up with horizontal branches.  The other in just regular garden soil.  Pictures taken today.

Palace King in a hugelhole.  ~3.5' tall with baby cukes.

Palace King in regular garden, clay, soil.  ~2' tall with blossoms only.
