Présentation de l'éditeur

You’ll find a bumper crop of vegetable gardening books on the shelves today, but it is a very rare title that actually contains new information. Straw Bale Gardens teaches gardening in a way that isn’t only new but is thoroughly innovative and revolutionary to home gardening. It solves every impediment today’s home gardeners face: bad soil, weeds, a short growing season, watering problems, limited garden space, and even physical difficulty working at ground level. Developed and pioneered by author and garden expert Joel Karsten, straw bale gardens create their own growing medium and heat source so you can get an earlier start. It couldn’t be simpler or more effective: all you need is a few bales of straw, some fertilizer, and some seeds or plants, and you can create a weedless vegetable garden anywhere—even in your driveway.
Karsten’s step-by-step guide offers all the information you need to make your own straw bale garden today. In this lushly photographed volume, Karsten shares all of the secrets he has developed over years of teaching eager students the miracle of straw bale gardening. You’ll learn how to locate and choose straw bales, then how to condition and plant them for the earliest possible start. You’ll master Karsten’s methods for combating plant pests and maximizing space by applying the principles of vertical gardening to his straw bales. Whether it’s seedlings or seeds, veggies or flowers, there is practically no limit to the plant varieties that will prosper in a straw bale garden—and with Karsten’s breakthrough gardening guide, you can do it all yourself.

ce sujet me passionnait de trop pour m'arrêter au barrage de la langue !! je n'avais plus fait d'anglais depuis mon bac (plus de 25 ans de celà !!) et je n'étais pas franchement bonne mais je me suis étonnée de comprendre "à peu près" !! par contre j'avoue quand même passer par Google pour traduire mais attention c'est de l'approximatif donc il faut vraiment être motivé !! du coup je me suis fait une liste de mots que je vais devoir apprendre (j'ai l'impression de retourner à l'école !!) car maintenant je suis nettement moins rétissante pour acheter un autre livre de jardin en anglais !!

HASH(0x9644bc9c) étoiles sur 5 Results Beyond My Highest Expectations! 28 juillet 2013
Par Larry L. Kistler - Publié sur
Format: Broché
The reviews here seem to be mostly "plan to, want to, expect to".

I'll make this short and sweet...I put in two bales this year as a trial and the results were not good...there were incredibly good!!!

I put in four tomatoes, three peppers, a zucchini, and a lemon cucumber on two bales, consciously trying to stress the concept to see what it would deliver.

I will never garden any other way! The plants all grew rapidly and have been exuberantly productive. In addition, for the first time in 25 years living in this location (San Francisco Peninsula), I have not had to fight the slugs and snails! One tried to climb the bale but gave up. What a relief to be freed of that struggle.

We're waiting for the huge crop of tomatoes to ripen while we harvest zucchini, cucumbers, and peppers.

I wholeheartedly recommend Mr. Karsten's book!

HASH(0x9644bd8c) étoiles sur 5 30 years of gardening and now making changes 19 mars 2014
Par R. Burke - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
This book has revolutionized how I garden. I have a 40x14 foot greenhouse and extensive outdoor gardens. However, I live high in the Rocky Mountains and my soil is nothing more than crushed shale. It costs me an arm and a leg to haul in compost every year and since my property is all pasture I don't have the luxury of leaves for massive amounts of compost. I started using straw bales for part of my garden last summer and I was stunned. It was the best garden I've ever had here. And at the end of the season we moved the wet, partially composted bales to the flower gardens and let them compost over the winter. Because the inside of the bales is warm from all the compost I was able to start plants a full 30 days before the normal season, with the help of a frost blanket on cold nights. I've brought in all straw bales for this summer and have already planted my spring crop in the greenhouse. This summer I'm adding Azomite dust and fungus to the bales, along with red earth worms. I think I'll end up planting half of my gardens in straw bales each year. Then use the leftover, partially composted bales to enrich my poor soil so I'll be gardening half in amended soil and half in bales each year. It's less expensive than hauling in compost and MANY FEWER weeds!

HASH(0x9644830c) étoiles sur 5 Best Tomatoes we ever have grown 13 août 2013
Par Ed J Getz - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
4 Months after getting the book I can say this method works great. We tried the straw bale and cannot belive the results so far in 2013.. we are in Minnesota and with tilled clay soil always had a uninspiring crop. A lot of fruit on the vine and hope they all ripen and taste great..TBD..The basel has the best we ever tatsed and so aromatic..Do recommend this process and are planning to expand for 2014
Oct 2 2013 UPDATE: This was the best veggie garden we have had. The only problem is that we had tried to many different plants in two straw bales.Crops that grew very tall ( Basel and tomatoes)overshadowed the smaller height plants like carrots and onions. We will extend the bales next year and have a section for smaller plants by themselves. Otherwise the plants liked the conditions. It is important to keep the watering up at ;east evry couple days.. For a first year experiment thumbs up..

HASH(0x96448cfc) étoiles sur 5 It's a good start. 22 juillet 2013
Par Keith Orr - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I bought this book after reading the NY Times article about the book and the concept of straw bale gardening. The author is a bit optimistic about the time it takes to condition the bales based on my experience after following his method to the T. Plan on four weeks. I think it's better to start early and give yourself a bit of leeway. I do live in the cool damp NW and that may have affected my results.

The book is worthwhile for great illustrations and the basics of straw bale gardening. Supplement the book by Googling "Straw Bale Gardening" and get some advice from others that have also been employing this technique for years.

One other note. I expected the bales to breakdown more than they did before planting. The best tool I found for planting is an old hatchet. I whack away where I want to plant things that come in pots to make the hole for planting.

HASH(0x96445ed0) étoiles sur 5 If It Ain't Broke . . . 21 juillet 2013
Par Sarah Gardner - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I was intrigued by this concept, and since I was moving my garden to a sunnier location, I gave it a try. I will enjoy a good harvest, but the whole process has been costly and labor intensive. Ten days conditioning the bales was a chore. Mine is not a grain producing region, so bales run $8-10 each. I don't ordinarily buy fertilizer of any kind, just use my own compost. But fertilizer is required for the bales. We have had a wet season, and my bales are starting to disintegrate in mid-July. When all is said and done, I will have a nice heap of compost in the location where I should have built new raised beds in the first place. Will do next season.
