    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

    Won't the straw mold as well as attract mice or other rodents for nesting?
