I've been playing with image sizes. The following dimensions have worked for me: 288 x 288 pixels, 4" x 4" image size
Let me know if that works for you.
Thanks. Resizing worked.

My EarthBox / Carrots!
« Last post by MCL on Today at 03:45:31 pm »
Here's some pictures of my carrots.
Last spring, I had low germination, so this year overseeded x 2.
Used Nantes type carrots (shorter) and skipped the cover.
Reused the media from tomatoes from last summer.

Had a good crop. All the pictures are from the single Earthbox on the right.

Questions and Answers / Dolomite setup
« Last post by Mabiscuits on May 31, 2020, 09:03:22 pm »
Previous Earthbox user who moved constantly and got out of it. I'm finally settled for a couple years, hopefully, and I pulled the boxes back out. I read the directions and reread them and got the box mostly setup.

Something didn't seem right to me and it turns out my reading and rereading was poorly done. Instead of mixing the dolomite in just the top few inches it is mixed throughout the box.

Is this a problem? Should I mix additional dolomite just in the top few inches or just let it be?

I think there is a file size limit, but not sure of it at the moment! Will check back. Sometimes it does post, but just takes a bit to load.

Questions and Answers / Re: Flies! Organic fertilizer. Do I start again?

I used the plastic cover. As we had a heatwave here this week (I'm in NorCal, Bay Area) I flipped it over and discovered the larvae and many flies at that point. I poked holes for where I planted seeds, guess they got in that way.

Did you use the plastic cover, I've never seen a fly issue with the organic fertilizer
