In the spring I wrote about my new gardening adventure, using a straw bale. I had never heard of planting in a straw bale. My friend brought the straw bales to my house for me and we got them in place. I had to “condition” them to be ready for planting. After about 10 days of conditioning, I planted my spring/summer veggie garden. I planted tomatoes, corn, cucumber, squash, mint and bell peppers. Much to my surprise, everything grew! I did harvest one ear of corn. I probably wouldn’t plant that again. My cherry tomatoes did great. The regular tomatoes didn’t fare as well. Loved my mint! I have had a handful of bell peppers and the squash is amazing. This is a great option if you don’t have soil to plant in or your soil isn’t so great. I will definitely try this again next year!
