Straw bale gardening is not something I’ve tried before, but this year is going to be my first. The technique has been around for a while now. An American horticulturalist, Joel Karsten, has been using this system for over 20 years and now grows almost all his vegetables and herbs this way, using 25 bales to supply his family’s needs. You can get find his books on amazon if you want to read more about him

In this five chapter guide you’ll learn exactly what straw bale gardening is all about. By planning and preparing in advance, conditioning the bales, and choosing the right plants, you can build a solid basis to start growing and harvesting your own fruits and vegetables from straw bales this season.
