<p>Welcome back, it&#39;s day 5. All we&#39;re going to do day 5, another half cup of our fertilizer, end to end, side to side. Sprinkle it on as evenly as you can. Grab your water, hopefully it&#39;s warmed water. Sprinkle that gallon of water onto the bale, end to end, side to side. You might smell something by day 5. Sometimes by day 5 you really start to smell that process of decomposition, that bacteria growing inside the bale and turning that straw into our brand new soil inside the bale. Don&#39;t be surprised if you get a little whiff of decomposition. It&#39;s not a bad smell. Your neighbors aren&#39;t going to complain. It&#39;s not that bad, but a little bit of decomposition smell is perfectly natural. That&#39;s it for day 5. See you tomorrow on day 6.</p>
