I was raised to play in the dirt – whether flower gardens, vegetable gardens, or several acres on a farmer’s land. In the summer of 2013, I drove by a garden that was edged with straw bales and thought, “What a unique way to keep out rabbits!” I was so intrigued, I turned my car around, parked, and walked over to ask the gardener about them. When she told me it was a straw bale garden, I was hooked. I immediately got Joel’s book and set up 5 bales on the dismal soil of my backyard. It was an adventurous and exciting summer project, and I later added a fall straw bale garden to decorate our front yard. I love experimenting with unique structures and plantings, and sharing this garden style with anyone who asks.
