Root Simple Video Podcast Episode 3: A Tour of Our Straw Bale Garden

Root Simple Video Podcast Episode 3: A Tour of Our Straw Bale Garden:
In the third episode of the Root Simple Video Podcast we’re taking you into the backyard for a tour of our straw bale garden.
We started rotting the bales in late April by adding blood meal. In May we added a balanced fertilizer and started planting the bales. In the video you’ll see the veggies we planted in early June.
The soaker hose you see comes from Home Depot. I’m pretty sure it is this stuff.
Every other week I add some fish emulsion to a watering can and hand water the plants to make sure they have enough nutrients.
