Another straw bale gardener
Here's a note from fellow Sentinel gardener, Beckie Giles:
We are trying a small hay bale garden this year to see how it does in our area. It started as my project and my husband has now taken over, which is good because he is meticulous with instruction so if we have any trouble we will know he followed the instructions to the letter and know what to adjust next year.
And here's a lovely garden quote sent by another Sentinel gardener, Darralee Matthews, which seems particularly pertinent, since several of us are experimenting with straw bale gardening and we have no idea whether or not it will work in our climate.
"A Garden is always a series of losses set against a few triumphs, like life itself."
