anyone try this yet? I just read some articles on how to grow garden veggies ontop of wheat straw bales and I am very interested to try it! I have two dogs that I have been wondering how to deter from using the garden as their potty - this way the garden will be up high and they can't you-know-what on the plants...hmmm... I wonder how easy it is and if anyone else has tried it - it can also work as a fence for around the garden too

I also read about this and thought it was really interesting. It could be modified pretty easily to work for alot of different situations. I may try some this year so I can keep my tomatoes seperate. This is the site I found-
