After the majority of wood is compiled, we'll go with leaves and then maybe purchase some straw or pine straw to add to the mix. Topping it all with soil or well rotted manure as the final layer and then plants!
Our Huglekultur pile is in a rather shady spot so I don't imagine sun loving veggies would work for us, but certainly other edible plants would be advisable. The idea is that it is a compost pile of sorts but works as a garden too. Neat eh? The decaying wood becomes spongy, holding in water and making it available to the roots from above. The bonus is that it usually requires little watering or weeding, and breaks down slowly over the decades.
