This straw bale was delivered today to our allotment, luckily we managed to convince the seller to deliver it to us because neither myself or my husband drive. We are planning on using it as ground cover, in lasagna style garden beds amongst a growing list of things.
Most of my seedlings are coming alot quite happily, growing in a combination of natural and artificial lighting. I move them from under the flourescent lights into the sun and rotate them as often as possible. The above photo is a tomato seedling called Brandywine.
