I’ve Got The First Bale Planted

I planted the first bale of straw this weekend. The bale is still a bit warm, but I don’t think so warm as to affect the tomatoes. Here is the process:

My original thoughts on opening the holes was to use a trowel. That didn’t work so well. (The straw was tightly packed) So the tool of choice turned out to be a pair of pliers, and some muscle.

Then I added a couple of handfuls of a good potting soil into the bottom of each hole for the tomato plant to grow into.

I planted the tomatoes, adding more potting soil around each of them. (Remember to loosen the roots, and plant them deep. New roots will form along the stem of the tomato plant.)

I staked the tomatoes using cages, and – – – – – – –

Now I’ll just sit back and watch them grow!!!

I’ve still got another bale of straw to plant. I think I’ll try some peppers in the next one. I’ll keep you posted on the process.
