Straw Bale Bio
Julie’s major is in General Horticulture through the University of Guelph, Ontario, Canada; currently the owner of Gitty-up and Grow ( a patio/container/vegetable gardening business) and a Master Gardener. Julie was intrigued by Joel’s book and the possibility of using straw bales as a growing medium. Julie had total hip replacement 3 years ago and some back issues; so the thought of growing above ground, was very appealing! Surrounding her current in-ground garden with bales served two purposes; more elevated growing space and rabbit/dog protection (my dogs chasing the rabbits through my garden!). With great success and a few challenges, Straw bale gardening can be a great way to round out your gardening experiences.
