Straw-Bale Gardening in the New York Times

Here is a great article on straw bale gardening.

I grow flowers and sell them at local farmers markets on Cape Cod. Each year, I go to the town dump and pick up a free chair to use in my gardens to set tools or flowers on. One year I started taking photos and now have a collection of garden chair images.

I look forward to a new chair and photo every year, and so do my customers who buy the cards I make with the photos.
