A recent article by Mary Hall in the DAILY JOURNAL from Kankakee Illinois speculates that: You might have seen it pop up on your Pinterest feed — cabbage, herbs or even flowers grown out of straw bales. “It’s the hot new gardening trend,” said Holly Froning, program coordinator for the master gardeners for the University of Illinois Extension. But this is more than just a trend, Froning added, at a seminar at the Bourbonnais Public Library last week.

    I was wondering if now that it’s the end of the season about preparing the bales for next season? Should the plants be pulled or cut if you intend to use the bales again? Thanks, Pete
