just so everyone knows - straw bale gardening seriously, SERIOUSLY works. here are some pics of the garden progress starting with my hydrangea that has surprised us all -
these are garden beans and i started the seeds in a huge pot. every seed took, so i left four in the pot and moved the others to the raised bed garden. all are blooming!
and these are the snap peas also started by seed in a large pot, and also moved to the raised bed garden. all are producing lovely little pods!
super sweet 100 tomatoes
more herbs (thyme, oregano and more basil)
we have a major overload of basil... so we made lots of fresh pesto and froze it.
hope everyone's garden is full of joy!
