Straw Bale Gardening, Day 21: Finally Planted!!!

There was a break in the rain today and I didn't see any ants in my straw bales, so I went for it and planted all of my stuff.  I hope I didn't overcrowd everything!  What do you think? (Click the picture for a better view!)

After I got everything planted, I watered it with my Miracle Grow liquid feeder that attaches to the water hose.  Hopefully everything will do OK!

Here is my little herb container garden that sits at the end of my straw bales.  My cilantro & basil are doing great.  I'm wondering if I need to thin the basil though.  What do you think?  My dill has come up in the large container. I thinned it a little bit, but I wonder if I need to thin it more.  I want as much as I can get, but I don't want to sacrifice the rest doing well if I don't thin it enough!

Hi there!

I really enjoy your blog. I found it while searching around for Straw Bale gardening techniques. Your garden is looking great. I'm trying this as well. I am almost ready to plant and am looking forward to seeing your results and mine!
