Straw Bale Planting Progress!

A while ago we updated about our efforts to keep our greenhouse warmer for the winter and increase our growing capability by cultivating in straw bales. First, we had to begin the decomposition process in the bales, applying water and fertilizer for several days. Then, we had to monitor the internal temperature of the bales using a soil thermometer. You let them warm up to their peak temperature (carefully) and then when they begin to cool- they are ready for planting!

And, without further ado- here are the happy little seedlings transplanted this week!
