Nicely done and very inspiring, good pictures,links and comments. Thank you !
Very nicely done and very thorough instructions. Do you cover it, do you drain it in winter ? It reminds me of an aquarium and I would guess could be an outdoor pond if desired. Thank you, very inspiring.
The thing about straw bale gardening is that you “season” the bales at least a month before planting. Seasoning meaning you fertilize and water the bales to promote it’s decomposition, meaning you do not need soil, the straw becomes the soil. The advantage is you have a relatively weed free environment except for an occasional sprout of wheat or oats or whatever the straw bale was composed of. When I realized how the seasoned straw replaces soil, it was an immediate answer to the poor topsoil I was dealing with. Joel Karsten, from my perspective is the guru of this technique. Below is a picture of my straw bale garden today 8/13/2019. Thank you again for your instructable !
Did you give any consideration to using straw bales as your “soil” source ? I am nearing the end of the season of my first straw bale garden and I’ve been impressed with decomposed straw as a plant medium, however as it is breaking down it is beginning to slump and want to fall apart. If I had your skill set and energy and could start over, I would have enclosed the bales in your greenhouse and been able to avoid staking up of bales and have a year round garden.
Our glass recycling is limited to cleanly rinsed glass jars and bottles. I’m told other glass does not meet the specifications needed for recycling. So don’t just “wish cycle” and assume your broken glass will be re-purposed, likely it will become garbage and add expense to the recycler.

Practical idea and nicely done video, inspiring
Thank you, this makes so much sense, especially for my new hiking boots. I no longer have to stop to retie throughout my walks and the aesthetics is a nice bonus.
