Strawbale gardening?

I searched the tags for this community and did not find one for strawbale gardening.  

Are there any members who do this? I'm trying it for my first year, as my zone 8A garden in central Arkansas has rocky clay soil that just suffocates plant roots. In the past 25 years, I've spent thousands of dollars trying to amend the soil, with wildly variable success.

I have a very small plot for my garden and will use the strawbales this year primarily for growing vegetables.

If you have experience with strawbale gardening, I'd really like to hear about it.
