Many basic facts counter to the authors agenda are simply, maybe purposefully, left out. Farmers would be extremely unlikely to ever allow their crop to enter this market. In addition while this article makes many claims which might lead readers to believe this is an issue on a large scale, the fact is that very few actual cases where this has happened have ever been actually documented. These involved hay bales, and not straw. To my knowledge, not a single documented case exists of straw causing this issue. Sorry, but you are simply wrong.

Read More I have been a gardener my whole life but my limited mobility has made it harder for me to bend down. Straw bale gardening is amazing I am able to garden again, and have even produced greater results than my friends with traditional gardens.
I am so happy to be able to continue my passion for gardening. Thank you Joel! Purchased the book, best investment in a book EVER! Easy read, very detailed I did end up planting six bales and had terrific luck growing everything in the straw bales. I am going to do 12 bales next year! It seems like every day that some crazy new concept in gardening comes along, and most are silly or a waste of time and money!
This straw bale gardening concept really works. I only planted two bales because that is all I could get into my car and trunk kind of messy but worth it! I have told all my friends and they are going to try it next year. You have made me a believer. One more thing, the class is very informative about lots of gardening stuff, not just straw bale gardens, l really enjoyed it very much!
