Grow Food Anywhere: Strawbale Container Gardening

Would you like to grow some tomatoes this Summer, but you only have a small space? Concerned about lugging heavy soil up flights of stairs? I have the solution for you, strawbale container gardening. Let me show you how to take a $5 storage bin from Family Dollar and grow food, flowers, and herbs with a small amount of soil. The container keeps the straw in place, and allows you to move it around to catch the sun, or shield on windy days. The straw keeps you plant anchored, and breaks down slowly to help feed your plants. It also makes the container very light for moving and storing at the end of the season.
