I came across strawbale gardening last year but it was too late in the season to try it so it went on the back burner and waited for this year. The idea is simple. Put some dirt (about4″) on top of a straw bale, stick a plant in it and let it grow. The dirt supplies the nutrients and the strawbale acts as a giant sponge holding and supplying water. It also breaks down over the course of the season and supplies some nutrients as well. Supposedly you can get two seasons out of a bale. When it is spent you just compost it!
