<p>Okay, folks, so here we are for day number two. Guess what? If you wake up on day number two, and it&#39;s raining, you get the day off, because all your bales needs is a little bit of moisture. We&#39;re not trying to drown anything here. We&#39;re not trying to feed roots. All we&#39;re trying to do is give that bacteria a little bit of moisture.</p> <p>If it&#39;s not raining, you&#39;re going to need to grab your hose or your watering can. Either one will work just fine. You just want to apply a little bit of water. You need about a gallon per day, or something like that. You can use either technique. Again, if your water&#39;s really cold, and it&#39;s early spring, you probably want to put some cold water in the bucket yesterday ... let it warm up until today, and then apply that.</p> <p>You don&#39;t need a lot, just a gallon or so, and, certainly, you don&#39;t need to tote warm water from the house. When I say warm water, what I really mean is cold water in a bucket, use it tomorrow. That&#39;s warm water ... so, that&#39;s it for day number two. How simple is that? Just a gallon of water ... that&#39;s it.</p>
