Before I had my knee replaced last June I planted a veggie Straw Bale Garden. It's made it so easy for me to maintain because I don't have to bend down. I'm really looking forward to this year's garden since I can walk well now. So glad I found SBG. Thanks Joel!Susan
Dear Joel: Just a note to thank you for the information you sent on how to grow a Straw Bale Garden. I read your no weeds statement with a cynical chuckle, and my husband only rolled his eyes. Now I must confess to you that I had nary five weeds all summer in my whole garden. You were almost telling the truth! Thanks again.Judith
Hi Joel. I've been doing a small straw bale garden for my tomatoes, peppers and squash since 2008. I am on the NC coast and the bales have worked great. For the last couple of summers, when we have had months of drought ... the bales stayed moist and required very little water. I watered weekly using a gallon of water per bale during that time (I actually used my AC condensate). I can't say enough good about the process, it's so easy and practically takes care of itself!Sandy
