Growing Vegetables in Straw Bales
Craig LeHoullier 2015 (USA)
Straw bales make perfect garden beds for your plants with easy planting, less watering and early harvests. They are inexpensive and provide an ideal growing medium for roots, have fewer weeds than ground level beds and are easy to maintain. The warm beds produce earlier harvests and after the season is over you can use the broken-down straw for mulching or adding structure to soil. This book guides you through the process of selecting straw bales and fertilizer, preparing bales for planting, choosing the best vegetables to grow and caring for your straw bale garden. 91pp
