Straw Bale Garden

The bales are set, hosed and trellised.

Well, thanks to help from David, Gregory and Alphonso I got 20 straw bales last week and have them sited, set with soaker hose, and equipped with trellises.  I started the conditioning process on Saturday, so these should be ready to plant on the 30th.

These first two trellises are 8 feet tall! Perfect for tomatoes.

And speaking of tomatoes, I placed my order today with http://heirloomtomatoplants.com/

Here’s what I got…

Black Plum
Costoluto Genovese
Japanese Black Truffle
Lime Green Salad
Oaxacan Jewel
Paul Robeson
Super Snow White

I’m am looking forward to these guys arriving in a few weeks, it’s going to be a great summer!
