Sky, moon, and mysterious straw bales

.
Something new was added to my local sky and usual moon for today's SkyWatch Friday.
Where did all these straw bales come from?! This mountain moshav/village has no big livestock, only laying hens.
The bales suddenly appeared in back of my neighbors' house, across the street.
This is the new neighbor who is into permaculture, organic farming, raw food, etc. Click here to see the beautiful garden spiral they made last year.
You think they might build a straw bale house?!
Maybe we (well, I mean they) will have a herd of donkeys?! I wish!!
Or maybe the bales will just become long benches to sit on . . .
I'll keep you informed.

I love mysteries especially those involving vaguely offbeat people.

Keep us posted.

Cloudia said...

Hay bale construction, that would be cool.
Is a garden spiral like a comfort spiral? ;-)
Thanks for having us over today!
Aloha-

Perhaps, as you say Dina, the bales will become benches to sit on, it will be interesting to see how they are used.
And to think that on the moon (nice photo too) the sun shines in a completely black sky!

RuneE said...

Me again - thank you for the very nice comments!!

You had me so intrigued about the hay bales, that I forgot to look at the moon! What a mystery, eh??

Interesting reality mystery there! That must be unique!

They have made homes here using bales of straw, sealed on both sides, and I understand the insulating factor is great. You do remember the story of the 3 Little Pigs and the Big Bad Wolf...

Thanks for visiting my blog and for commenting there about peanut butter on the trees.

I hope you get to see my new blog Our Flower Pot sometime soon.

I hope that those bales serve for a beautiful house(simple, ecological, resistant to the time and the fire).

Adrienne in Ohio said...

Interesting. I'll be eager to see photos of what they do with them.

Maybe they will be getting a large animal that eats hay!

Salam, Dina. Thanks for stopping by and enjoying karaoke at my new place. I came here several times tiptoeing, didn't leave any marks :). Wish you a happy weekend. Greetings from Hiroshima.

Permaculture takes a lot of straw, you may get lucky and get a supply of fresh vegetables yourself.

I hope this post finds you well Dina..I haven't been visiting in a while...I somehow lost some of my web sites in my google reader... Have a very nice weekend...

Can't light a candle in a house made of straw. Can't huff and puff, either. Must be for the garden or the chickens.

Yaelian said...

Great picture Dina.If they build a straw bale house, could you photograph the different stages, it is really fascinating.

Lakshmi said...

love these rustic shots..amazing

Kay said...

What fun to imagine what they could be. Over here in Hawaii it would soon be full of bugs.

Bonnie Bonsai said...

I did read somewhere that bales of hay can make a house. In some Asian countries they do that. But of different kind like coconut trees from trunks to their leaves.

Great to find a blogger from Israel. Shalom!

Thanks for leaving kind comment at Skywatch Friday #47.

They will probably be using it in their garden.

At school, we have the use of some land across the street, for a community garden.

It's been a great lesson to the kids about growing food.

They have been sprinkling the strw on to the garden beds and then covering them with a layer of top soil . You can also use the straw as mulch, but you are supposed to let it rot a little..
