Hey, feral cats love to eat, why not let them work a little for it. I worked to pay for the damn cat food, right. What I didn’t clarify here is the hugelkultur “beds” were dug about eight inches deep…into very hard soil and rock…first laid with the sotol (a few steps up from a balsa wood-like plant fiber that should of course break down quicker than regular wood), then threw in some chopped up “cattle tongue” prickly pear cactus, then compost (thanks, cats), water, and finally covered over. We’ll see what these little experimental hugelkultur beds, or what I humorously refer to as “alien graves”, will do. They’re suppose to help retain moisture and in the meanwhile breakdown with the help of zillions of little organisms. Makes sense here. This is nearly February, 2014. I’ll check the beds in a couple months. Our rainfall average is 11-inches a year. BTW: This video took over an hour to upload. The cats are still out there, working even deeper on the compost area. Good, good kitties. Video Rating: / 5
