My family thought I had gone senile, lol. I started my seeds inside. I have never done that before. I so enjoyed this process. I purchased the items I needed to make my straw bale garden. I started with ten bales. I prepared my spot, set up the bales, added the trellis and waited for the right time to start. My neighbors were curious about what on earth I was doing. I explained it to them and they eagerly watched as time went by.
Here is my original setup with the ten bales. This was before I put up the trellis.
Here is a picture after I added the trellis and added two additional bales for tomatoes. By this time I have planted the bales and discovered I did not have enough room to plant everything I had grown from seeds.
Here are some pictures well into the season. Guess what? Straw Bale Gardening works and I am hooked. It is the easiest and most successful garden I have ever planted.
I am doing a larger garden this year!
