It’s October

October 5, 2011

It’s October and we still have tomatoes growing from our straw bales.  Colton and Claire love checking the bales for red tomatoes.  Claire thinks they are balls and Colton loves to pick them and line them up on the patio table. 

I love fall, but I am going to miss fresh tomatoes.  Straw bale gardening seems to be easier than traditional gardening requiring less maintenance, but I don’t know if we will do it again… I was a bit of a slacker when it came to maintaining our bales.  At least we got a few good eats from them!
