Have you ever heard of using hay bales to grow flowers and vegetables instead of garden beds?
Apparently you just sprinkle a little dirt on top and the plants sink their roots down into the hay bale. It’s easier to manage and requires less water.
A local person asked on a local Facebook group and the whole group was interested! Is this a growing trend?
One person had tried it and said they dried out too quickly and needed to be watered more frequently than dirt.
Another said it worked, but not as well as dirt.
Another said they had a big problem with weeds and only recommended it if you don’t have a good garden bed on your property to work with.
Have you tried it? What did you think?
