About this title:

Synopsis: Straw Bale Gardening for Beginners: How to Grow Vegetables and Herbs without any Digging Looking to try straw bale gardening but not sure that it's the right solution for you? When I began looking into straw bale gardening, I had a lot of questions about the techniques used in this type of gardening. Would vegetables and herbs really grow in straw? Is straw bale gardening as easy as it sounds? We usually think of gardening as planting seeds directly in the ground, then weeding them carefully all throughout the growing season. When we tell someone we're about to start a garden, the likely response is "Wow, that's a lot of work!" I was fascinated by the idea that it might be possible to grow lots of vegetables at home, save money on groceries, and not do much work at all while meeting my goals, so I started growing things in straw bales. Some things grew well, while others did not. Along the way, I learned how to make simple straw bales produce a bumper crop of vegetables. If you're interested in growing food but don't want to waste time digging or weeding, this method is for you. Learn how to turn humble straw bales, a little soil, and some tiny plants into an abundant garden that's easy to care for. Also, you'll discover.. Which vegetables grow best in straw bales Simple methods for dealing with common garden pests and plant diseases Easy, step-by-step instructions for getting started And much more! Table of Contents Why Use Bales? Ten Amazing Benefits of Gardening with Straw Grow a garden just about anywhere, access your plants easily, conserve water, and enjoy other benefits with simple straw bales. What to Grow? Try these Favorites Discover the top vegetables to grow in straw bales, and learn about other plants that flourish in this growing medium. Planning the Perfect Straw Bale Garden Avoid pitfalls, set yourself up for success, and make your garden a great place to be.
