My own #Hugelkultur experiment. My garden suffers from every crackpot scheme I find on the internet, worm teas, alfalfa teas, charcoal carbon sequestering, composts  and now Hugelkultur, this is all I have done so far . I dug a big hole in a low spot in the garden and buried my failed shiitake mushroom growing logs with some other debris. The mushroom logs were pecan and on their way becoming dirt again, I had some other old pine and mostly burnt charcoal logs to the mix, put the soil back on and had a 2ft mound in the garden. So let';s see how this works..

#Alpha-Gal     
http://alpha-gal.org/      
    This a very scary thing to happen to a person, I had three very scary trips to the emergency room for  anaphylaxis with no explanation. I know that I am allergic to shrimp-shellfish-but I am vegetarian and am very vigilant about avoiding places that cook or serve shellfish. Occasionally I would eat at places that are not at all vegetarian friendly and just eat salad or vegetable sides---not any more ----
I have not been tested yet but I really believe that Alpha Gal fits
. Every time this has happened to me it happens several hours after I have gone to sleep and I am covered head to toe with a very itchy rash and  have difficulty breathing. Then off to the emergency room. It is the delayed response to something I have eaten that is the clue, most allergies are instantaneous reactions after exposure , Alpha
Gal happens hours after exposure, I believe I may have eaten vegetables cooked in pork is what caused this, I live in South Carolina and this is a traditional way of cooking most greens and beans so now I just stick with raw salads when I go out to local restaurants.
