Does anyone on here do straw bale gardening? I would like to ask if it would be good to put some of the bales out with the turkeys and chickens for them to set on and poop on the bales. Then let the bales set over the winter (to age the poop) and next spring use them for my gardening? Straw bale gardening is using bales of straw to plant your garden plants in, instead of using soil. You actually plant directly into the bale of straw. I haven't tried it before, but have been reading about it on the forum in dave's garden and it sounds easy and good. I did ask the poop question on there, but no has answered it. Thought I'd try asking on here.
