Simple Gardening

Today's the day..I planted the first straw bale with pumpkins!

To start out with, the bales have been watered and have been composting now for 3 weeks. They were still somewhat stiff but I was able to scoop out a hole about 6" in depth.

I filled the hole in with miracle grow potting soil to form a mound. Now 3 seeds go in each mound and the wait begins!

I hope to get 1 or 2 pumpkins per vine.

Cost= $4.25 for straw bale
Pumpkin seeds = $1.09

More straw bale gardening coming in the next couple of weeks. Gourds going in next. Stay tuned!
