Straw Bale Gardening
This year I'm trying something new (yes, my DH reclaimed the corner of the corn field so I needed to be creative with my garden space). Back in the "old days", planting a garden in straw bales was common SO, with the help of DH, we purchased 10 bales and took them thru the conditioning stage of 10 days and have the tomatoes, peppers and gourd plants looking pretty good. I have discovered they (the bales) need watered at least every other day so I put a soaker hose the length of the bale run - makes the chore very easy!
Anyone else ever tried the bale gardening?
