When people start a vegetable gardening adventure, they’re often put down by the hardships that come with a soil that isn’t as fertile as you’d like. Our advice is not to let go of your plans and turn to a smart and creative alternative: straw bale gardening. As the name suggests, this type of gardening implies using the straw as substitute for your usual yard soil. There are some precise steps you have to go through in order to get the best results out of your future veggie crops: source the straw, position your bales, condition them, and even build a trellis and greenhouse in one. There is about 10 days in terms of time you have to wait for the entire thing to take proper shape and reach its best condition. Choosing straw bale gardening is kind of awesome because it mixes the best of container gardening with vertical gardening. So, don’t wait for the soil to change by itself, plant away with straw bales!
