Lets Get Started Gardening!

May 14, 2011
Chris picked up our straw bales last week and we have gotten to work!
Were about 2 weeks behind, but hopefully that will not hurt us too bad!
This is our first time doing any type of garden so were going to start off with only 4 bales!  Despite the fact that my mother in law and my father in law both do large gardens every year Chris and I know very little about gardening and even LESS about straw bale gardening.  I found a good website called Grow and Make that had some great info about straw bale gardening.  I have actually been really surprised at how popular this form of gardening is!
We went right to work soaking our bales… Colton has enjoyed this part!
Claire thought about getting in on the action, but kept her distance from her brother and the gardening hose!
Were excited to see how this is going to turn out!  Stay tuned!
