Oh wow! What a GREAT garden!! I LOVE the hay bales! Is there some gardening tip reason you used hay bales? Or was it just a creative way to plant something?

The idea came from other blogs I read. The main reason I used the bales there was because the water from the creek behind the fence rises up almost as high as the top of the bales. Thankfully this doesn’t happen often. If the planted straw works out, then I’ve killed two birds with one stone. As the bales rot away and turn into compost, I’ll be raising the ground level there a little. Also, I can’t have a raised bed in that corner due to underground wires.

What did the boys plant?

S. planted entirely salad. He loves eating greens. H. planted everything! Potatoes, jack-o-lantern, gourds, broccoli, onions, probably even more than that. We’ll thin it when/if things come up.

The garden is looking great! I’m sure all your hard work will pay off in a very tasty way very shortly.
