In the fall of 21012, I was at the MN State Fair and was in the Horticultural Building when they had a display on Straw Bale Gardening. I was hooked. I attended a class that spring given by Joel, bought the book and got my bales. 2013 was my first year to try this and was very pleased. I had never had such big carrots in my garden and pulling them out was so easy………and no dirt with them! In 2014 I added more bales and also did pumpkins and squash to my bales. The results were wonderful and the vines covered all the bales and the ground so I had no weeding.
For me, the biggest advantage is less watering and no weeding. And it is a bonus to have your garden off the ground.
