Straw bale gardening has hit the internet pretty strong in the last several years, but no matter how many times we see a photo of it in action, we forget how much we love the idea of it. It's perfect for renters that have space to grow, but can't make the commitment to a raised bed — plus it stays weed free!

The upkeep on a straw bale garden is quite minimal, but there are a few things you need to do to the bales before planting in them. Check out more details on the idea over at Carolina Country to see what you need to do 10 days prior to planting and check out all the cool photos of the gardens once all the plants grow big and tall!
