Straw-Bale Gardening - the Cure

The Cure - Well, gardening and sunshine may be the cure for many conditions, but this curing is to prepare the bales for this new concept of gardening.  This is the book I picked up at Lowes to describe the process: 


There are four simple steps to this process and it doesn't include weeding! 1. Cure the bales (water) & add fertilizer to accelerate decomposition on the bale. 2. Plant & water 3. Water, watch, & wait. 4. Harvest.  Here are my straw bales.  We've been watering for about 2 weeks now. The rain has taken over some days.   





I'll keep you posted on the progress.  Check back here.  Chris
