I live in Arvada, Colorado a suburb west of Denver. I began Straw Bale Gardening last season purely by accident. After a party in February of 2015 that used bales as a decoration, I needed to find out what I was going to do with them after the party. I was looking online for someone who perhaps had a use for them and BANG! there it was! Straw Bale Gardening. The timing was perfect. I began my conditioning and preparation and I was on my way to the best garden I ever had.
I have had so many neighbors, visitors and all kinds of people asking me about this way of gardening that I have really researched and learned a lot about. I am excited about the upcoming season. I plan on making my dirt garden even smaller and putting bales instead in the area. I love the fact that weeding is almost non existent. This gardening is great for older adults, children, beginners and seasoned gardeners.
This year I have gotten bales from several places and have increased the size immensely.
I am by no means an expert on this yet, but I intend to keep on learning and helping others to also learn. Through my victories and mistakes, I would love to let other people know how simple and plentiful this type of gardening can be.
Helpful and encouraging, this is my second year of SBG and I made a lot of mistakes the first year. Thank you
Very helpful and very positive. Enjoyed reading. Lrk
