I am pleasantly surprised how easy it is to keep the straw bales watered. The plants are growing very well. This first shot was taken on May 25.
The photo below was taken June 3. The tomatoes are really taking off and beginning to flower.
I can almost hear the plants growing as I admire my garden. This shot was taken June 13.
The chard is very happy growing in the straw bales. Weeding is super easy, any small seeds that blew in pull right out.
The zucchini is setting flower buds. This is the first year I have grown zucchini and yellow summer squash.
