108 : Talking Straw Bale Gardening with Robert Pavlis

Episode 108 - Talking Straw Bale Gardening with Robert Pavlis

Straw bale gardens are all the rage these days. People seem to love this seemingly easy way to grow vegetables in bales of straw – but is it all it’s cracked up to be? Thankfully we we author, teacher, master gardener, man of science and myth-buster Robert Pavlis to help us separate fact from fantasy. Robert recently did an experiment where he set up a side-by-side comparison of a straw bale garden with a conventional garden in the soil. Have a listen and hear what he observed!

  1. Matilda Field says:

    Hay and straw are not the same. I noticed that several times you used the term hay when you were referring to straw. Hay is animal feed. Straw is bedding.

    Thanks for the podcast. I enjoy finding one that’s from Canada.

    Happy gardening!
