[STRAW BALE WITH ZUCHINNI PLANTS, LEFT]
Breaking ground and preparing the garden beds for planting is on my mind in April. I will be expanding my straw bale gardening this season as last year the results were very positive. My bales produced plenty of zuchinni and even three picnic-sized watermelons. This year I want to plant my tomatoes in bales as well and set out bales in a space in my Grandma’s Garden enclosure to utilize a new spot.
I love the bales because they naturally decompose over the season and are terrific compost for my earth beds. Also, my seeds grow but weeds do not as the bales contain no weed seeds. Heaven!!! That is why I am putting 3 bales in the tom….
