straw bale beds

A few weeks back, I picked up a copy of Fine Gardening from the magazine swap rack at the Santa Fe Library. There was an article by Amy Stewart of Garden Rant about raised, straw-bale gardens. When I saw the article, the photo in it looked familiar. Then I remembered her recent post about having to wear "nice" clothes for video shoots about gardening:

Sure enough, there's a video with Amy talking about her straw bale garden. Some more digging (ha ha) turned up Amy's original post from back when she first started the straw bales. And a link from the video comments turned up this discussion thread started by a guy who calls himself "Strawbaleman." He shares lots of great photos of his gardens:

Maybe this could work in the side bed, along the south-facing wall.
