Planting Tomatoes On Hay

How do you plant tomatoes on hay?

Are you sure they are planted on hay?? I plant mine, then mulch around them with hay. I also do the same with all my vines (cucumber, watermelon, squash...).

If you put a thick layer of newspaper under the mulch, weeds don't stand much of a chance. It also helps with water usage.

Tim...there is a man named Kent Rogers in NC that does all his gardening in straw bales...I looked into the sight and we have planted 2 bales by the method he uses and they are doing GREAT. I have had 2 back surgeries and it is hard for me to weed SO this method is wonderful. I am planning on doing my entire garden this way next year You can contact him at:

Hope you find your answer and GOOD LUCK if you decide to try!
