Wow, another wonderful report about some folks from the Northwest, who were novice gardeners, having great success with Straw Bale Gardening.  I love it!

Leigh Sietsema's curator insight, January 3, 2015 4:25 PM

LOVE this easy and cheap way to start and grow a successful garden.  We use bales of straw on our property and they are indeed inexpensive.  The prep on this is just 10-14 days, then you plant and water!  Check it out!
