I've found that in the SE, wood decays so rapidly that some nitrogen needs to be added to help get the tomato plant established. My hugels are built with semi to well rotted wood. I build little walls out the clay to create terraces to hold topsoil in place on top of the log. (The soil out of my front yard could pass for adobe once it dries out.)
My hugels are in the front yard as well and still mystify the neighbors.
