Okra IMO is absolutely killer if you pre-cook in a steamer to soften, and then double tempura dip and deep fry.

 

I finally got my veggies planted. I am skipping the heirloom tomatoes this year, and have focused on gmo free Beefsteak, betterboy, early girl, romas, and red pear varieties. I have also got a zuchinni, orange and red peppers. Thyme, Basil, Curly and Flat leaf parsley.

 Elba Paprika and heatless jalapeno (thank you juthro) they survived the winter and are taking off well now.

 

I have a lot of other plants, these are just the veggies. Hopefully I remain gopher free this year.

mah
Straw bales is an option that will work well and can look really nice on a deck or patio as well as in the yard. Should be pretty easy round yonder to find straw bales cheep!

but something to take into consideration is the 2 week conditioning period, the cost of the organic fert to get it composting and amount of water it takes through the 2 week conditioning process.

Maybe the size of my bale garden or the hybrid bale-raised bed concept I used, but it's defenatly not a gardening on a budget Sorta project. Glad I had the OT of the 60 hour work weeks I been doing!

But then again the bale garden concept was created for those who can't traditional garden so....

See in my situation, I consider it to be gardening on a budget. $5 a bale, and I plant right into the bale. It's way cheaper for me, but I already have all the fancy organic guano fertilizers on hand.

 

@psybear How often are you watering your bad boys? Daily?

yea! thats an idea too! but my problem would be moving those bales after i found some. cant pick up and throw a bale off my truck anymore like i used to when i had two good shoulders.. my main expense is gonna be the soil which is gonna be a bitch to load and unload too! think i got all planned out though.. sure could use a minion though....lol

Add 5 X 30 add 6 cubic ft of soil mix and on the third bag of vegi-tone.
At least I got Got horse and duck manuer free

Ya I'm in my 2nd full week of conditioning. So they are watered daily. But I got a prairie grass straw not a wheat straw. I may have to water more then wheat. We will see!

You know. all this hay bale talk has got me thinking...

 

I just thought of a good future project for myself :)

 

Going to pick up 1-2 of these 600lb round bales of hay

 

roll that badboy an top a pallet and drench the whole thing with

some compost teas over a good few week period, keeping it

black tarp covered in between.

 

Let that sucker sit over winter, plant straight into it in the spring, just lay

a soaker hose over top to water.

 

 

SOUNDS LIKE A FUN DAMN PROJECT FOR THE NIECES AND NEPHEW!!! lol

I got all kinds of fowl manure too now :) 

 

 

 

thanks for the ideas everyone :)

Other bear would not let me use the 30 bales as "gate" for our driveway. I'd put it at the top between the houses in a step sorta fashion like bleachers and plant like that and then no one would be able to get in the back with out coming through the house.

He just shook his head and wandered off

Man I love the sound of a couple of those large round bales. That would be cool as hell!
