So, I’m trying a thing. Since we moved into our new home at the start of gardening season, I don’t have enough time to build up the soil in new garden beds. We have a great huge garden already built, but I’m wanting to plant as much food and as many herbs as possible right away, so I decided to give straw bale gardening a go. From what I’ve read, it’s quick and easy, and plants love it. And once the bales break down in the fall, I’ll have some good compost to build up some more beds next spring. It’s worth a try, right? I’m thinking of doing a few rows next to the existing garden.
Has anyone tried straw bale gardening? What was your experience with it?
