Straw Bale Garden

1 Comment

Our straw bale garden is doing really well. After a month of “conditioning”, I dug some holes in the top and added potting soil. I then planted some petunias and nasturtiums. The result is fantastic! We placed the straw bale along a building, under the eves, where nothing much would grow. I water it a couple of times a week and occasionally add a high nitrogen fertilizer. Beautiful!

  1. How cool is this! I saw someone planted potatoes in a Rubbermaid garbage can with holes drilled in it. I can’t wait to see how it turns out!
