Four straw bales and some compost are all you need to set up this nifty biodegradable garden bed. There's no digging, no weeding, and no need for crop rotation. By the end of the season, the bed will have disintegrated into a glorious pile of compost. And next year, you can build another bed in a new location if you choose.

After you try it, show it off to other members in the
gardener's gallery.
