on the hay/straw...if you look into buying last year's overage, you'll get it for a song.

i've read several accounts of people doing that for their straw bale structures.

in this area shipping is the issue. there are no wheat fields locally and tons of poser farmers that only have horses--requiring vast hay supplies for bedding.

Karl, did you get ahold of http://Nycon.com about the PVA fiber yet? For the amount you need for the root cellar the sample bag they send out may be enough. Ask for the RSC15. My contact is Bob Cruso (800) 456-9266. Case of the RSC15 are $172 but that is 40 lbs, enough for many truck loads of concrete.
