    Wow , A very intelligent gardening super model.
    You dont see that very often.
    Just a side note, Ive been bale gardening for many years.
    If you add additional ties to the bales with stainless steel wire , The bales will last 20 years or more.

    Hi, I was wondering if you could possibly help me. I'm on day 6 of treating my hay bales oh, and they have not gone through their heat yet. I have been applying the nitrogen as described in your video. Is this an issue? Is there anything else I should be doing?

    I have been straw bale gardening for about three years. I like to use the wider side gives me more growing space. I don't use fertilizer, I find compost works just fine.

    It is February now. I want to plant my broccoli, cabbage in straw bales. Can I do this outside in my garden? Will the bales heat up with your process?

    I have watch all the hay bale YouTube video and you are the only one that have stated they will catch fire and that they will cook your seeds… Thank you I had straw in 100% sun was afraid of that but no one ever mention it… Good thing I kept it wet

    you might also use IBC totes cut in half to put your bales into that would collect the water (put an overflow hole two inches up). then you can make and hold your composted bales or soil to be gathered up more easily without the mess or scattering of the rotted hay..
