The concept of the straw bale vegetable garden has erupted on the Internet over the last year, with new gardeners looking for an alternate to the back-breaking labour of tilling a bed in the yard.
The concept is very easy. Put plants in a straw bale and let them root in the natural pockets created by the dried-out grass. As the straw breaks down and decomposes, your garden is fertilized. There are definitely some big pluses with straw bale gardens.
