Questions and Answers / Re: What to do about mosquitos??
« on: September 09, 2018, 12:49:41 pm »
I put a tsp of mosquito dunk bits down the tube every 2-3 weeks..it keeps them down.
I use an AWS with all my boxes óeven so they breed in the reservoir..
Itís worth the effort to keep their population down.

Questions and Answers / Re: My tomatoes died
« on: September 09, 2018, 12:42:50 pm »
Was it just stem damage?  No leaf or tomato damage?  Did you notice any  bugs 🐛 or chewing on the stems?
If the leaves were not effective it seems like animals... deer, gopher, rats.  Etc ...
Just one plant ?
Sorry for all the questions... Iíve had animal damage and thatís what it seems like to me.

Questions and Answers / Re: snack

I buy mine at a farm co-op.  50 lbs for I think $20... it stores well in covered 5 gallon buckets. As long as it doesnít get wet it works well.
I have 40 regular and 10 juniors but even then I have a lot left from purchasing 2 years ago.
I try to be reasonably consistent in using it.  I use it on all veggies,  not just tomatoes.

Introductions / Re: It all started with marigolds ...

I thought your marigold post was about planting marigolds in the EB... :).  I always plant either a marigold or basil plant in my tomato boxes and have had good insect control with them.  I tuck it into the extra hole for the water tube..or make a spot if my own covers with parachord.
I plant between 12-20 boxes in tomatoes for the past 12+years.  I have 40 regular and 10 juniors which I donít use as efficiently.
Interested in following your successes with the root veg boxes.
You will love Earthboxes and am sure you will also.
Gook Luck, Judi

I think I was on as a guest when I tried to report... works great now.  I am getting used to the new site and can see it took a lot of work.  Happy to also see others returning to the site.  Really missed the support and advice from all !!  👩🏻‍🌾🤗

Tips and Tricks / Re: Mint as a rodent deterrant, early resultsl

I am happy to see this post.  Although I don't see The culprits in action I do have squirrels and others helping themselves.  I was afraid to plant it except in pots but will try this as I get my broccoli in.  Although i was able to get rid of my groundhog problem late last year by trapping 5 large and one small, I think it opened up the buffet for the little guys.
I recently bought some mint and will try this 😊

Glad to see some of the veterans !!!  Congratulations GardenDoc on your promotion..where do you find the time??
Not sure why but when I found the Forum was up my chance from the EB Facebook site on Wednesday there
was not a report to moderator tab on each post as there is now... maybe I was in as a guest ??  I do see the post I was concerned about has been deleted.
Happy to be back...Judi

Glad to be back ....  looking forward to some good productive conversations !!

I do have a question...  I do not see any buttons for notifying admin for suspicious postings.  There is one here and am concerned ...in the past would have sent a message for someone to check it out...is there a way to do this.??
