From time to time I seem to be a renegade in the proper care and feeding of Earthbox crops (FBP use and "the snack" come to mind). There been a lot of interest since I started posting videos of the "mad scientist" in action. With that in mind Im starting this topic that will focus with methods that I have found successful here at the UNF. Ill be moving some of the more memorable tidbits here.

I spoke at the Greenhouse Tomato Short course last month in Raymond, MS and found these neat little clips that greenhouse tomato growers use. I think will make trellising much easier in our home gardens. I bought these from Growers Supply, www.growerssupply.com, item 110007 tomato clips.

Gardendoc, we bought these clips about 4 years ago and tried to use them for 2 seasons. They worked well the 1st year but became very brittle and broke during use the 2nd year. This year were using Velcro brand Self-Gripping Ties. Worked well during the bad weather we had last week.

The clips only cost 2 cents each, one year is good in my book.

But....but....but it only took you less than 8 minutes to prep and replant your box. I thought it couldn't be done in less than 30 minutes.

Super videos. They've given me some ideas. I have to watch them again at home so I can hear the audio. I would LOVE to get to less than 10min to prep/replant. I typically take about 20-30min at the mo. I think. It feels like a lot of time. I should really time myself next time...hmm...

Any who, again, love the vids!

Cheers,

OK so you don't take out the top 2" to get rid of the salts from old planting left over?  How long have you been doing it this way?  Have you seen any detriment from the salts getting mixed into the planting medium?

If you use organic fert you don't get salt build up like synthetic fret.

Right now I'm transitioning from lettuce. For the winter leafy crops I use a locally available certified organic fertilizer. With the heavier feeding tomatoes, peppers, etc. I use the ag grade granular. When prepping after using the granular fertilizers I only remove the mix immediately surrounding the fertilizer strip, not the entire top 2" which I consider extreme overkill when considering salt buildup.

I have asked a couple of times precisely what is it about the salts that is detrimental to subsequent plantings.  Never got an answer--or missed it if it was posted.

Anybody really know?

Salts are toxic in higher doses/concentrates. Salt was used as a weed killer back in the day.

The salt buildup may inhibit or cause damage to the root system. I grow two crops of tomatoes and two crops of lettuce/greens in the same EBs in a 12-month period. I think it needs to be in the back of the gardeners mind when prepping.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Salt_%28chemistry%29

is interesting, but doesnt really shed light on what would interest us

-which kind of salts develop in the EarthBox
(it certainly is not sodium chloride, NaCl--the salt we normally think of)
-how do they affect plants

I assume they would come from either Ca or Mg as the cation and maybe nitrate or nitrite (nitrogen) as the anion--but that is pure guess.

Great video.  I'm going to go get some flashing tomorrow.  I have a question...  I think I started my plants way too early and they are now 12" or more in height.  I have them in a 2 pint container and our frost date is apprx. May 10th.  Are my plants too big to transplant into an earthbox or should I start over with new seeds?  I also have squash plants of equal or larger in size.  I just couldn't help my self.  My house and garage looks like a forest.

Those are going to be really big holding them another 3+ weeks. I know folks have transplanted this size in their EBS. I like to transplant seedlings are about 8 weeks old. BW will transplant much smaller plugs. There are lots of options

Bdumler, if you have any way to cover them in event of a predicted frost, you could consider going ahead with the planting...but with another 3 weeks, that leaves a pretty significant possibility of cold.

Frost you could probably protect from; a hard freeze would be deadly though.

I may try to plant some and leave them in the garage. I could probably move them with a dolly. I just had eye surgery so I can't lift anything over 10 lbs. Just trying to figure out if I can do this and stake them at the same time.

Got the flashing yesterday. Now I'm trying to bend it to size. This will make mixing up the mix sooooo much easier. Thank you Gardendoc!!!!!!!!!!!!! That was the best idea ever. If you happen to read this, I would be interested in how you snack your tomatoes. I had a bad problem with BSR last year and I followed all instructions to the tee. I added the one time treatment to the pour hole but it didn't help. Hopefully this will be a better year.

Thanks everyone who answers all of our questions. I have learned so much from everyone!!!

Try using calcium nitrate as a "snack", 1 tsp in the reservoir about once per week will help with BER.

BDumler - In addition to the Snack Doc mentions which many of us use, new boxes are more likely to have BER also.  I had it on many of my tomatoes in first year but have not had it since.

I did that my first year with EBs. Rolled them out in the morning and back in at night when the 30s were predicted. Harbor Freight has carpet covered moving dollies. I started with 2 EBs and 2 dollies. They are handy and last forever.

Cushman,
I've seen these.  I shop at Harbor Freight a lot.  Do you think they would be easy to move them from the front yard to the back yard  going over loose rocks?  Eventually they need to go into the back yard.  Did you secure them to the dolly with anything or did you just sit them on top and hold on to both while rolling them? 

Its raining right now and thunder and lighting.  Love it!

Is Calcium Nitrate  a powder or liquid and do I get it at a gardening store like Zamzoes,  Home Depot, etc. or a pharmacy?

When you said that BSR is better in 2nd and 3rd yr boxes does that mean you planted tomatoes in the same box each year rather than rotating the crops?   This will be my 3rd year and I was going to put a different crop in each box.  I started with 2 boxes when I lived in Los Angeles and now have 14 here in ID.  I may not have enough for everything and will have to resort to a few buckets.

Got the flashing and got it bent together and taped together.  Tried it out and it works great!!!!

Now, I will have to go to Harbor Freight and get the dollys.

Thanks again to everyone here for your advice and all of your knowledge!

BDumler2-- calcium nitrate is not commonly found locally. You MIGHT find it at a feed store, but most of us get it on line. The best source I've found is www.kelp4less.com  they are reasonably priced, and the shipping is free. Calcium nitrate comes in granules, is fairly heavy, so order enough (a small amount really wont last you).

If you get the dollies from Harbor Freight, tie a rope to one end so you can pull it instead of trying to push it while hanging onto the EB.

During the threat of freezing, I just rolled them from garage to driveway. Loose gravel would surely be a problem. As Mickie said, pulling will be easier than pushing. The narrow wheels will dig into the gravel. I would just keep them near a protected location until temps are not a danger, then place them permanently.

Is there a way to make sure we don't have salt build up if were not sure.  I was using non-organic fertilizer but have switched to organic.  Can the potting mix be flushed out some way or do I need to start completely over?  This will be my 3rd year and I have always dug out the fertilizer strip and surrounding area. 
Thanking you in advance for all and everyone's help.

Any salts present will rise and collect at the top of the mix, not throughout unless one has turned it into the mix instead of removing first.

Here's what I used for my Zucchini.  There's a piece of rebar in the ground that the pvc fits over so it wont blow over.  I had trellis string but it was too small for the leaves so I just left the pvc pipe and it worked great.

When I saw that the trellis string was too small I took it out. The four sides of the pvc pipe with the learge leaves seemed to hold up the plant off of the ground which was my intention. Where the plant is gets a lot of wind from the front. For the pepper plants I think the ultimato looks better.

Gardendoc,
Thanks for the video.  I have used the Ultimato in the past with miserable results but now realize my error after watching the video.

The cross pieces need to be attached so they will remain attached as the pressure from the growing plant pushes outward. 
I think I was not paying attention to putting those cross bars on correctly....some popped off. 
I am thinking the ones that popped off were put on from the outside so when the plant pushes out----POP...sounds basic but I think I missed it.

I am planning to dig out all the pieces and start using them again this year for peppers.
 
Maybe also for zucchini which I also try to keep from dragging on the ground.  I did find by putting my fert. strip across the short side and placing the zucchini plants more in the middle of the box they did not lean so much onto the ground....but still could use some support as the plants get so huge.....

I do 2 zucchini/squash like that... way more stable. However, I found that they do exert a lot of leaning pressure when they get big. I tried just staking each plant... bad idea. Next, I tried the 4 stakes in the corners of the box with twine rungs wrapped around... didn't hold up to the weight of mature plants.

Finally, what did work very well was the pea fence. It fit as a rectangle, with the legs straddling the box along the long sides. If I needed to stick some legs into the box in places, it was ok. I was prepared to tie the cage to the box around each end, but it never became necessary. As the plants grew, I slipped the leaves through the fence and let the stems rest on the rungs. That helped balance and stabilize the plants. Ventilation was better too.

Great idea Mickie,

I have only used the pea fences for tomatos but have a few that are single that I could use.

I find using the pea fences expanding to most of my garden. My green beans were always a tangled mess when I tried to harvest them. Tada!! Pea fences to the rescue! This year I will use them on my corn, broccoli, peppers and eggplants as well.

I wait for the sales coupled with the $25-50-100 coupon promotions. I think Im up to 32 fences now...

Its the spring season and the forum has been getting a lot of questions from home gardeners about the initial setup of their first Earthbox(es). How much mix to use, type of mix, fertilizer, etc. 

Heres a video our production team shot a couple of years ago about the intitial setup of sub-irrigated containers using an Earthbox as the example. Note this pre development of some of my custom EB tools and improved setup strategies.

Here's the latest video we shot this morning at the UNF. This demonstrates a quick and easy way to transition between crops within the same season. We grew a crop of mustard spinach and harvested last week. With 3 more months of hot weather we want to keep these EBs in production without a complete renovation of the EBs.

I like that idea, very cool. But you're not refreshing the fertilizer strip. So, does that mean that the follow-up crop needs to be a light feeder?

I use the Calcium nitrate (calcinit). I didnt find anything at kelp4less listed as calcium nitrate fertilizer. I would be concerned about other added elements as a fertilizer. The calcinit is just what it is: calcium nitrate.

I wondered the same thing when I visited the kelp4less website.  There are two descriptions for the same item..."Calcium Nitrate (calcinit), granular fertilizer solution grade....calcium nitrate is a fully water soluble nitrogen and calcium fertilizer granular material..."

Just search using calcinit.  FYI, I ordered a 4lbs. yesterday evening and they have already sent it out todays mail with USPS.  Thats fast service.  Its also in sale!

I was wondering what the plastic is you are using to cover the boxes.  I saw the video where you said to use plastic and just tuck it in but I am not sure what type of plastic that is or where to get it.

Do your boxes not get too hot using the black tops?   I am about 60 miles north of you and know it is in the 90s almost every day now this time of year.

At $64.95 for 35lbs, I wouldn't worry about the ratios. I prefer to go to Lowes and buy dolomitic lime for 40lbs/under $5.

The plastic comes from Lowes and is 3mil, I think. I'm not concerned about the cover color and EB temp. For one thing, most of the time the canopy of the vegetables is covering the EB top.

I don't necessarily worry about individual EB water consumption, I look at water delivery per zone.

My tomatoes, peppers, and eggplants are on the same zone, a total of 64 EBs. I base the zone needs on the tomato (highest water usage) and run the irrigation system a total of 90 min/day or 1.5 gallons per EB. Last year I run the system 120 min but am able to reduce run time with the tucked cover capturing rain water

With all the discussion on how to treat leaf disease problems, let me say that I've gotten away from spraying as much fungicide as I used to, this season only twice. You want tomatoes not beautiful plants. Our 33 tomato EBs produced almost 400lbs

In your set-up video you use a putty knife to tuck in the edges of a plastic covering when not using the elasticized mulch covers (aka "shower caps"). I've found putty knives very helpful for setting up also.  An inexpensive, narrow  plastic one is great for preparing the fertilizer trench and for digging out synthetic fert at the end of the season.  A broader one is great for making the "bread loaf" shaped mound and results in spilling less potting mix when I put on the EB mulch cover.

As for topics, trellising comes up a lot, but there are so many variations, I dont know how a video could be done on that--except for a specific single style.

Different locations for the strip?
