Product description

From the Back Cover

The Easiest Garden Ever!
Straw bales make perfect beds for your plants - they are inexpensive, provide an ideal growing medium for roots, have few weeds, and are easy to maintain. Gardening expert Craig LeHoullier walks you through the process of selecting straw bales and fertilizer, preparing bales for planting, choosing the best vegetables to grow, and caring for your straw bale garden. The warm beds produce earlier harvests, and after the season is over, you can use the broken-down straw for mulching or adding structure to soil.

About the Author

Craig LeHoullier is the author of Growing Vegetables in Straw Bales and Epic Tomatoes and the tomato adviser for Seed Savers Exchange. In the last 30 years, he has trialed more than 1,200 tomato varieties and has introduced more than 100 varieties to the trade. He lectures widely, from local Master Gardener groups to Monticello, the Philadelphia and Northwest Flower Shows, and Seed Savers Exchange.
