A whole fan page on Facebook for straw bale gardening!
Learn to Grow a Straw Bale Garden
The creator lives in Minnesota, my old stomping grounds, and there's lots of info, plus he has a website.
He uses ammonium nitrate (a type of fertilizer) in place of legume inoculant, otherwise very similar to other attempts I've read. BUT - lots of great photos of mature bale gardens and ideas for doing fencing.
I'm in heaven!
