There’s a simple joy to growing your own food, and an increasing number of households are realizing that enjoyment, planting backyard gardens and raising their own vegetables, fruits, and herbs. In fact, studies indicate that the percentage of households who grow at least some food has increased steadily over the past decade. And while you might know how to till some soil and plant a crop in the ground or a raised bed, straw bale gardening might be a completely new way of gardening to you.
Straw bale gardening enables you to grow vegetables, herbs, and other plants easily, without the need for any digging, tilling, or constructing anything more complicated than a trellis. A straw bale garden fills a variety of situations and needs, is relatively inexpensive, allows for an extended growing season, reduces the incidence of crop diseases, and so much more. Because the straw bale becomes both container and growing medium, you are freed from the expense of installing a traditional garden.
