Quite a toasty temperature in the straw bales. They’ve had quite a dose of rain this week, almost 2inches, and the air temperature is slowly coming up. We are forecasted to have another cool weekend, so it will be interesting to see how much it drops the temperature in the bales.
My 2foot raised beds are at 50F at 6inch depth, and my garden beds are barely 45F at 6inches. I actually lost all my peas due to the freeze we had two weekends ago, but it did not seem to phase the straw bales process.
