A: No plywood would not be good and it has lots of glue in it and when it gets wet it will expand and begin to rot and fall apart. Metal roofing, pallets boards and even 1 inch wide boards would be better. understand you want to save as much as possible but if you're going to have to replace it next year you have not save much of anything Q : Chris ask: Just found out about the straw bale planting. Is it advisable to plant potatoes in a straw bale? Is there an issue with sunlight turning the spuds green? A: Thank you for your question. You can grow potatoes in straw bales after you condition the bale. But from what we have been told from Joel Karsten the author of the growing in straw bales book for some reason they just do not do very well. yes they will grow but not as good as they should. Also you have to cut the bale opent to harvest and unable to grow in the bale again. We have tried a no dig method and it has worked well for us which we have had a hard time with growing potatoes for years The companies that make the show possible Proplugger of https://proplugger.com/ Rootmaker of https://myrootmaker.com/ Us coupon code Radio21 at checkout and save 15% of your order Chapin Manufacturing Inc. of https://chapinmfg.com/ Pomona pectin of https://pomonapectin.com/ Iv organics of https://ivorganics.com/ Dr. JimZ of https://drjimz.com/ Seed Savers Exchange of https://www.seedsavers.org/ Waterhoop of https://waterhoop.com/ Phyllom BioProducts of http://www.phyllombioproducts.com/home.html Happy leaf led of https://happyleafled.com/ Dripworks of https://www.dripworks.com/ Deer defeat https://deerdefeat.com/ use code Radio at check out to save 10% on your order Blue ribbon organics http://blueribbonorganics.com/ Chip Drop of https://getchipdrop.com/ Walton's Inc of https://www.waltonsinc.com/ Tree Diaper of http://www.treediaper.com/ Janie's Mill of https://www.janiesmill.com/ Nature's Lawn and Garden Inc of https://www.natureslawn.com/gardentalk can get 10% off on Aerify Plus by using this link Simply Earth of https://simplyearth.com/ Quick Snap Sprinklers of https://www.quick-snap.com/ Timber Pro Coatings of https://timberprocoatingsusa.com/products/internal-wood-stabilizer/ Bloomin easy plants of https://bloomineasyplants.com/ Tiger Torch of https://www.tigertorchltd.com/ Seedlinked of https://www.seedlinked.com/ Iron Wood Tool Company of https://www.ironwoodtools.com/ Natural green products of https://www.natgreenproducts.com/ EZ Step Products of https://ezstepproducts.com/ Rinsekit Of https://rinsekit.com/ Rincon Vitova of https://www.rinconvitova.com/ Wild Delight of https://www.wilddelight.com/ Bale buster of https://strawbalegardens-com.myshopify.com/collections/balebuster-bale-preparation-formula Soul brew kombucha of https://mysoulbrew.com/ Rescue of https://rescue.com/ Yard Glider of https://yardglider.com/ Piper and leaf of https://piperandleaf.com/ Heard on Joy 1340 AM & 98.7 FM Milwaukee, WI Saturdays 7-8 AM CST Replay Saturdays 7-8 PM CST https://tunein.com/radio/Joy-1340-s30042/ Heard on WCRN 830 AM Westborough/Boston, MA Saturdays 8-9 AM EST Replay Sundays 5-6 AM EST https://tunein.com/radio/WCRN-AM-830-Full-Service-Radio-s1112/ Heard on KYAH 540 AM Delta/Salt Lake City, UT Saturdays 1-2 PM MST Reply Sundays 1-2 PM MST https://tunein.com/radio/KYAH-540-s34223/ Heard on KDIZ 1570 AM Minneapolis, MN Saturdays 4-5 PM and replay Sundays 2-3 PM CST http://player.listenlive.co/57071 Heard on WAAM 1600 AM & 92.7 FM Ann Arbor, MI Sundays 7-8 AM EST https://tinyurl.com/p68cvft Heard on WOGO 680 AM & 103.1 FM Chippewa Falls, WI Sundays 9-10 AM CST https://onlineradiobox.com/us/wogo/ Heard on KFEQ 680 AM & 107.9 FM St. Joseph/Kansas City, MO Saturdays 6-7 AM replay Sundays 10-11 AM CST http://www.680kfeq.com/live-stream/ Heard on WNAX 570 AM Yankton SD Sundays 10-11 AM CST bonus play Saturdays 2-3 PM CST (when twins baseball is not on) https://wnax.com/ Heard on WMBS 590 AM & 101.1 FM Uniontown/Pittsburgh/Morgantown PA.
