We found the garden nice and wet today. The sprouts are from leftover seeds in the straw bales. The recommended removal method is snipping them with scissors, but we just pulled them out. This is about as tough as the weeding gets with straw bale gardening! No trouble determining "weeds" at this point as we have not planted any vegetables yet.

Saturday a lot happened in the garden.
Many people came together to install weed suppression in the form of cardboard and wood chips, and place the bales. The Tipi trellis was also installed. Not much is going to change in the garden for a while.
Daily watering of the bales is necessary to start the decomposition of the straw.
If you can’t wait to see what happened Saturday, you can go to Flickr to see some of the pictures that participants have posted.
