Wow, this sounds perfect for my yard. It's probably to late for this summer, but I'm going to try it next year.
Remember, nobody can go back to the very beginning and make a brand new start, but anyone can start here and make a brand new end.
There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when it's convenient. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses; only results."

I found this book listed in the interlibrary loan consortium that my library belongs to. It's in high demand, a backup of 26 holds on 16 copies. Guess I'll have to content myself with online searches for now.....

We tried this method years ago and had good luck with it. This year we've set up 3 straw bale beds and the plants in it are THRIVING. Very excited about it!
You can look up the method online and there's a new book out too, titled "Straw Bale Gardens" by Joel Karsten. Great little book! It'll tell you everything you need to know and is generously illustrated too, He reccommends starting with fresh bales every year but we're going to let ours break down and box them in for a raised bed next year.
