Straw Bale Delivery Day

Last week we got a delivery of straw bales from Galusha Farm. These straw bales have many uses including an insulation wall for our bee hives, building up our hugelkulturs, insulating around the base of our fruit trees, a grow medium for the spring and the creation of a compost area in the food forest.  Bonus - we shared the order with fellow gardeners and ended up getting to see many of our friends during pick up. Those (masked) face to face encounters are rare these days and on a beautiful fall day it was even better!
