Per gardendoc
Per gallon:
1 tbs permetheran 10%
1/4 cup (4 tbs) spinosad
3 tbs daconil
2 tbs (1 oz) spreader sticker

I made this into a document, framed it and hung it where we keep the sprayer and the chemicals.

Awesome, thanks Aline

Tips and Tricks / Insecticide/Fungicide concoction help.
« Last post by Stickymatch on June 09, 2018, 08:23:41 am »
A few years ago, there was a great discussion about an insecticide/fungicide concoction for tomatoes and other veg plants.  It consisted of Daconil; Ferti-lome borer, bagworm, caterpillar spray; Vegetable plus, and spreader sticker.

Does anyone happen to have the ratio for each in the solution.  I need to refill my pump sprayer and I've lost my notes somewhere.  Any help is appreciated.

Questions and Answers / Have extra EB...what to plant?
« Last post by Teagan on June 08, 2018, 11:00:01 am »
So I have an extra EB. The pepper plant currently residing in it is wasting valuable real estate. I have a balcony and need to choose plants wisely:) SO what do people recommend planting this late in Chicago? I could do two more tomato plants (can never have enough tomatoes) or try something new. The tomato plants would need to be a hybrid or determinate. I might just get stuck with whatever is left at the garden store :( Recommendations anyone?

I always put 6 plants in a box and they do AMAZING! I cut back early on so they get big and bushy. Here is a pic just after planting them......

I knew I should have planted them! grrr I wonder if its too late. I have an extra earthbox with one orange pepper plant that doesn't seem very promising. I could take that baby out and have a full earthbox to plant more tomato plants or snap peas but I think one needs to plant the latter early in the season.

Questions and Answers / Re: Strawberries

I read in an older thread that you don't need to add dolomite to a strawberry box.

I'm of the opinion (now) that an Earthbox is overkill for strawberries having planted a box with the Eversweet variety myself. Two of my plants browned completely out and died while the rest seem to be thriving. One is sending out shoots to create new plants. I think top watering until they're established helps. I didn't start doing that until the second plant died.

Did you apply lime? I think strawberries like it a little more acidic.

Yes and Yes.

I planted the type with edible shells. Never got to harvest any because my children would eat them after school as fresh snacks right off of the plant.

It's been awhile but If I remember correctly they grew 4 or 5 feet tall.
