bales of straw were
cut from a perennial --- canary reedgrass, which grows in soupy ground
down by a creek. The farmer reports:
Clearly, the demand for
his straw is high. The farmer has just about sold out, having moved
1,000 bales using a self-serve kiosk by the side of the road over the
course of the winter and spring.
I'll try to remember to report back once I have more of an idea of the pros and cons of using this Perennial Straw in the garden. For now, I suspect it'll rot a little faster since it has more of a grass feel than a straw feel, but will otherwise work as expected. Stay tuned for further details!
