We've been waiting for some updates from Patricia's Straw Bale Garden experiment (remember this post from April?) Here's what she has to say:
"I have had to improvise a sort of trellis ( I used wild sunflower stalks
) crisscrossing the tops of the bales to hold up branches. Plants got
much bigger than I expected." Take a look at these tomato plants! You can barely even see the bale.
