Effortless Food Production With Hay Bale Gardening

Using hay bales as a simple and ‘no work’ gardening method is a relatively new idea. Here we have an article which, along with a video, gives us an idea into this method of food production.

It seems that hay bale gardening requires little or no work and a minimum amount of maintenance. After planting directly into the bale we find that as the season progresses so the hay breaks down to nourish the plants from inside. A huge advantage with this method is that all the beds are raised which means that predators are kept away and even an avid gardener with an aching back can enjoy this new style of veggie garden. With this method there is no weeding needed and neither is there any need to fertilise. Less watering is an added bonus.

There is a section of choosing hay over straw which is well documented and very informative. After reading this article you might be very tempted to have a go at this new method of growing vegetables.

Why Hay Bales are Superior to Straw Bales

  • Straw is likely made from genetically modified plant matter
  • No fertilizer needed with hay
  • Less Watering

US Naval Officer Gets A Big Surprise When His Aircraft Carrier Docks In San Diego

A US Navy sailor had a big surprise when his aircraft carrier docked in San Diego this past week. After reuniting with his wife and family, his wife surprised him with some news – she is 8 months pregnant with their fourth child!

Petty Officer 1st Class Chris Daugherty, a Navy cryptographic technician, returned to the U.S. on June 23 after a six-month deployment on board the USS Carl Vinson.

Upon disembarking, Daugherty’s two daughters and son rushed over to greet their uniformed father. He hugged his little ones, who were clad in mini sailor outfits, while his wife, Natasha Daugherty, hung back, smiling.

She hid her stomach behind a large poster decorated with blue hearts and red paint spelling out “Welcome Home Baby Daddy.” When Chris reached out for a hug, Natasha tossed the poster aside to reveal her nearly eight-months-pregnant belly.

The big reveal was captured on cellphone video.

In the sweet clip, Chris drops his arms and looks down at his wife’s belly. Eblazoned on her shirt are the words, “I am the present my daddy gave my mommy before he deployed.” After a shocked pause, he pokes her belly and asks, “Is it real?”

While onlookers smile and laugh, Chris embraces and kisses his wife.

“Wanted to say thanks to my amazing wife Natasha for the awesome homecoming weekend she planned,” said Chris, in a Facebook post. “I couldn’t have asked for a better one, and it was great news finding out we will be welcoming a new baby girl soon.”

The couple lives in Temecula, California, just north of San Diego County. Together, they have three children, a 10-year-old son, a 4-year-old girl and an 18-month-old toddler. Now, baby No. 4 will join the family.

Natasha used emojis and careful placement of herself and other people, including her daughter, to hide her growing belly in pictures that she sent to Chris while he was deployed

On Wednesday, Natasha told NBC 7 that the hardest part of keeping her pregnancy a secret from her husband was the worry that came with thinking that something might happen to Chris during the deployment, especially as tensions rose with North Korea.

“As soon as we started having trouble with North Korea, I became worried,” she said.

The USS Vinson deployed on Jan. 5 as part of the U.S. Pacific Fleet-led initiative to extend the command and control functions of the U.S. 3rd Fleet into the Indo-Asia-Pacific region. The strike group also patrolled the Korean Peninsula after North Korea began testing ballistic missiles. North Korea called the dispatch of the U.S. aircraft carrier toward its waters “outrageous.”
