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
