Tales of Straw Bale Gardening

Saturday, May 04, 2013

Yesterday was day number 10 emoticon I fertilized and watered emoticon and went out and bought started tomatoes, basil, parsley and anticipation of Day 12 emoticon emoticon .My paper towel seed tapes had dried nicely. All seemed to be ready but no good deed goes unpunished…..
DH turned on the lawn sprinkler and found that the stake by the side of the straw bale punctured the sprinkler water line! emoticon Huge leak! DH spent the afternoon getting parts to fix it.

Today is Day number 11 – the day of rest and waiting!!! emoticon But no resting for DH who fixed the leak emoticon . We checked the temperature inside the bales and it was 100 degrees in two of the bales. Way too hot for transplanting . emoticon and is probably why they say to wait one day. Hope the temp tomorrow is just right......Becauase tomorrow is Day 12 - Planting Day emoticon
