You can see in the gallery below all of the steps that took place starting from where we left off in a previous post about creating a lot of mulch from last year's Straw Bale Garden, you can read about that and watch the video HERE. Also, you can hover over the pictures for captions.
The steps are simple:
- Clear all grass and weeds from the area. I weed eat first and then burn what is remaining with a landscaping torch.
- Layout 2-3 layers of cardboard to prevent weeds.
- Layout the straw bales and put down a bunch of straw over the cardboard and place stakes around the bales.
- Being prepping and conditioning the bales for planting, this usually takes around 2 weeks.
I also wanted to let you know in case you missed it on one of our previous videos, I am a certified Straw Bale Garden Instructor, you can visit my listing page on the Straw Bale Garden website HERE. If you have any questions on how to create a Straw Bale Garden, the conditioning process, or better yet, invite me out to consult with you on how and where to put it then contact me here are through the official SBG website.
Stay posted for updates on the garden and the rest of the farm.
