Well, I'm declaring the straw bale gardening idea a dead loss. All they appear to be doing is providing an excellent staging ground for the damned slugs.

At least the slugs are enjoying the strawberries.

This winter/ next spring, which is less crazy deadline-wise than NOW, I will mulch the straw in, build raised beds, and compost over it. For now, I guess I don't get to eat much lettuce or many strawberries, because I just don't have time or energy to repair the situation.

At least I have a nice little gastropod sanctuary.
