Well thank you for the inviting welcome, I sure will post some photos, I'll check out the site and format and maybe start a thread in the "Show us yours" forum.
Maybe I can get a couple threads going in the "Do it yourself" forums as well.

OK, The Forums format is user friendly, I was able to get some of my builds under the "Do it yourself" forum.

I'll try to get something going in the "Show us yours" forum later today.

I see several Hugelkultur bed posts -- but I no grids or SFG bed posts or mention of Mel's Mix. Do you have any SFG beds, or are you planning to add some? 

I've heard of Hugelkultur before, but I haven't bothered to learn much since it's not in my near future (I'm renting, and don't have a truck.) So my question is, what stops the wood forming the exterior of the bed from rotting along with the rest of the wood inside it?

Still debating on if I will be doing any of Mel's mix.
The beds are 22" wide.
I am also still undecided on following the SFG method, still researching.
The wood will rot over time , my last beds that ended up completely underground, lasted twenty years

Interesting!  Great looking garden!  I do SFG with MM, but Idon't use a grid.  My original "beds" were re-purposes window boxes of non-SFG dimensions...work just fine, but not completely SFG for the pure of heart!  flower

May I suggest you start one in your Regional forum (Mid-Atlantic (I think))

Several others inspired me to make one in my regional forum - 2017 SFG Adventures in Hampstead NC
I use it sort of like a blog for my "adventure"
