    Yes I typed in soaker hoses. Darn spell check. What I was asking was they appear to be on the straw bales not the ground. Is that enough water for the plants? Super great idea and I LOVE your markers. Putting that on my honey do list.

    I am a bit confused - you say your planting in bails of straw or hay but I also see lots of bags of potting soil and garden soil. What are they for? Also where is your blog?

    How did you condition the bales.Also what are the black posts beyond the wooden support posts? They look almost like black strapping in your photos. Photos of the plastic threaded between the wire would be helpful. Thanks
