I'll make this short and sweet...I put in two bales this year as a trial and the results were not good...there were incredibly good!!!
I put in four tomatoes, three peppers, a zucchini, and a lemon cucumber on two bales, consciously trying to stress the concept to see what it would deliver.
I will never garden any other way! The plants all grew rapidly and have been exuberantly productive. In addition, for the first time in 25 years living in this location (San Francisco Peninsula), I have not had to fight the slugs and snails! One tried to climb the bale but gave up. What a relief to be freed of that struggle.
We're waiting for the huge crop of tomatoes to ripen while we harvest zucchini, cucumbers, and peppers.
I wholeheartedly recommend Mr. Karsten's book!
Wow what a wonderful find! My friend had the earlier version which I looked through and feel in love with. This concept just makes so much sense. So when I went looking for the book I saw that they had the updated version - Straw Bale Gardens (Complete) I am glad that I got this book because it has all of what the original book has and more. I am so excited to try this out this season I will try to give an update of how it goes
Oct 2 2013 UPDATE: This was the best veggie garden we have had. The only problem is that we had tried to many different plants in two straw bales.Crops that grew very tall ( Basel and tomatoes)overshadowed the smaller height plants like carrots and onions. We will extend the bales next year and have a section for smaller plants by themselves. Otherwise the plants liked the conditions. It is important to keep the watering up at ;east evry couple days.. For a first year experiment thumbs up..
