Straw Bale Gardening, Day 3 (And Comments Fixed)

Yesterday, I watered all the bales down really well.  That's about it.  I can't wait for them to be ready to plant in!

By the way, someone mentioned that they had tried to comment on my blog and couldn't.  I'm not sure what the problem is with this layout, but it doesn't work with embedded comments.  I've changed the settings now though, so comment away! :)

Hi Heather,

Thanks for visiting my blog, and good luck with your straw bales. I don't know how much good advice I can give you, since this is only my 2nd attempt, but I'm going to keep up with your blog so maybe we can learn from each other. I haven't heard that about the earthworms. Give it a try--it can't hurt. Ditto the horse manure. I buy my bales really early--like February--and let them cure naturally. I position my bales the way you did, for the same reasons, although I'm tempted to put them string-down to get more planting space. Maybe next year. Good luck, and keep us updated!

PS--I'd like to add your blog to my links--What region of the country are you in? (My list is arranged geographically.)
