I am however excited by a choice we made this year to start a straw bale garden. My friend Pat, sold me on it at the last Food Circle Meeting. I recently had time to read, Straw Bale Gardens, by Joel Karsten. It was easy to understand & I started planning a 6 bale garden very quickly.
An order was placed with Baker Creek Heirloom Seed Company. It was a very small order compared to most, but I got:
Rocky Top Lettuce Mix Salad Blend, Golden Honeymoon Melon, Chantenay Red Core Carrot, De Grace Snow Pea, Gigante d' Inverno Spinach, Butter King Lettuce, Sugar Baby Watermelon, Tom Thumb Lettuce
Today I also started two varieties of tomatoes, green peppers & some lettuce to cut early, from seed I had. They are in a sunny window in my walkout video studio.
Also we ordered one of those roll around little greenhouses for growing greens hopefully all year inside and outside + a watering timer for the straw bale garden. I'll be letting you know what I bought and how it worked for ME.
I will post photos when there is something to take photos of.
