I am going to be putting the garden to bed and moving the salad greens and such indoors. (Got two big pots of strawberries that will be coming in also)
I am going to be having a garden in the basement where the water won't hurt it. Next season will be a serious bale garden with pictures.

I want to put some fall crops in on mine if I can figure out how to build this so the city won't freak out on me.

I have a good crop of potatoes grown in my sraw bale garden. Easy, no work!

I am trying to figure out how to make a border for my yard that isn't going to look tacky through the winter but will allow me to berm up the north side for some soil conservation as I have no curb on the south side of the property. I think that if I line the area with bales and get some fill in for the leveling of the yard it might be a good thing. It is only an idea right now as I have seriously over done my goals for this summer.

Looks like I am moving back to Colorado Springs. yay! So I am going to see if I will have some room for a bail or two as a salad greens starter.

Great! Thanks!

Makes great sense... just make sure your straw is wet when you start. It will compost as time goes on, and may even keep your bed heated up for a longer season! Just top it off as you need to would be my best guess for settling.

I am thinking about building 3 foot high raised beds for my garden, filling the first couple of feet with straw, and topping off with a good foot of dirt and compost. My back doesn't see the benefit of a 1 foot raised bed, and my wallet is skeptical that buying enough dirt to fill 3 foot high raised beds makes sense. Any suggestions or pointers?
