Someone mentioned to me that they had heard of someone planting in strawbales. You are supposed to wet the bales down, wait a couple of days, care out an area and add soil and seeds or transplants. everything else is as usual and the bale will rot down over the growing season. Sounds like it would work well to me. Anyone have any thoughts on it or has anyone ever tried it? I was thinking of putting out some lettuces and spinach for the fall. Since we are staying with my sister, I could still garden and not dig up her yard.
