Looking For Hay Bale Gardening
[Return to Topics]

Someone recently posted a site about planting vegs in a hay bale. I had marked the site as favorite, and then suddenly, all my favorites have disappeared. Who remembers the poster who was talking about the bale garden? Was telling some elderly folks about it and they wanted to know more, and lo and behold, I can't find it.

Here are a few links that I used two seasons ago to grow incredible tomatoes, squash, cucs and peppers. It works but I am modifying this years garden to include a box to help provide additional support as well as aid in water retention.
