It's ALIVE! (Straw Bale Gardening, Day 8)

Look what I found growing out of my straw bales when I went out to water them today - wheat!  Maybe this means I'm doing something right?  I did pry back some of the straw and feel inside, and it was pretty warm inside, so I think that's a good sign too!  As far as the wheat grass goes - I pulled most of it out.  Maybe I won't have to battle it too much.

In other gardening news, I planted half of a packet of dill in a large flower pot this afternoon.  I'm saving the other half to be planted in my straw bales when I'm able to...hopefully this weekend.  We'll see which seeds fare better.
