Straw Bale Gardening

Using straw bales as self-contained gardening beds would provide ideal growing conditions for many of your favorite crops.

At the end of the first summer, this is what you can expect your bales to look like. No need to cover or worry over them, just let them sit till next spring/summer so they can be reused for root crops such as radishes and beets.
