I put some of my seedlings in straw this year. This will be the first time I have tried this, so we'll see how it goes. I wasn't able to season the bales as much as needed before I planted, so whether or not this will hinder success, I don't know.
I planted potatoes under straw flakes (top right). No burying necessary. Friends of mine swear by this method, so I'm giving it a shot.
Alongside the bales are my horseradish and strawberries. The 4th of July tomato plant shows signs of our lack of rain...until today!
