    Straw bale Coldframe! Such a great idea b/c you can easily and quickly construct and deconstruct ~ then use the hay as mulch in the garden.

    The Amazing Cold Frame

    We use two tomato plants per bale with marigold plants tucked in pockets in sides of bales. The flowers will warn you when the bales are too dry inside. Also we use jute twine so it can go directly into compost next year. Straw gets spread as mulch for winter.

    How to grow strawberries

    Get your garden started early by planting your seeds in eggshells indoors before the weather permits outdoor growth. There are several reasons why eggshells are the perfect pot for this, but the biggest is that they are cheap (free really), full of calcium to give your seedlings that extra boost, and easy to plant in the garden when ready (the shell can stay on!).
