Hay Bale gardening: no weeds, no fertilizers and less watering!! What a simple but amazing concept!!

To me (who isn’t much of a gardener), I thought this was a very simple yet successful way to garden – even in our drought!

And, I know exactly where to get hay bales.

Basically, you treat the bales with nitrogen and water over 12 days in preparation for planting.  Then, you plant on top, on the sides – anywhere in the bale – and everything grows!  The nutrients from the decomposing grasses feed the plants during their cycle.  Afterwards, everything can be put into a compost pile to use in your garden next year!

Brilliant!  Raised beds that you don’t have to build!
