I haven't put the content to the test yet, but I'm very excited to think about it. Making a list of things I will need to plant a straw bale garden. The book seems very complete, has good pictures, and information which will probabaly answer all your questions before you can even ask them.
I tried this with two straw bales this summer and 4 tomato plants. I had great success. I have never had so many tomatoes! I plan on doing this next year with even more straw bales. I took his suggestion of planting impatiens on the front side of the bales and they look beautiful!
I ABSOLUTELY, ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS BOOK!!! There is SO much information! I FEEL VERY CONFIDENT IN MYSELF TO TRY THE HAY BALE GARDENING after reading this book! WISH I would’ve found this years ago, but that’s ok as I am SO EXCITED and cannot wait to buy the Hay Bales from my local farmers! THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR ALL THE GREAT INFO AND ALL THE PICTURES!
I had heard of straw bale gardening and interested in trying it. The book is well written and easy instructions to follow in setting up your garden. The chart of how many plants to a bale is especially helpful to the first timer.
Great book with very clear step by step instructions and everytabkit straw bales gardening that I would want to know. We haven't set up our straw bales yet so I'm not sure how great the method is but the book is great.
