I'd go 8 bush beans total to give more room for their lateral growth

Questions and Answers / Pole beans vs bush?
« Last post by KC612 on May 22, 2019, 12:13:44 pm »
Hello All,
I'm sure this has been covered before, but does anyone know if the planting chart refers to pole vs bush beans?  I'm assuming pole varieties, but am not 100% sure on that.  I have bush variety and was wondering the best way to plant?  Any help would be greatly appreciated!


Thanks!!!

We had a fun visit from WLOX shooting a Page 13 feature of our Urban Nano Farm and showcasing our EarthBoxes. It gives a glimpse of my crazy garden. Enjoy!

Tips and Tricks / Re: Tomatoes with Cracked Shouders

Some varieties are more prone to cracking. Might try picking at first blush and allow to ripen on the window sill or next to your coffee maker.

I've been growing in EBs for over 10 years and have never seen any yellowjackets or wasps build nests at the EB base. Black and brown widow spiders, yes.

Questions and Answers / yellow jacket nests

I had a bad problem with yellow jackets making nests in the base of my earth boxes and they ate all of the strawberries.  How can I keep that from happening again?  Has anybody here had that problem and if so how did you address it?

Welcome BigE!   The cages are made using pea fences - I believe Park Seed and Gurneyís both sell them, but canít remember which I bought from.  I canít take credit for the idea- I got it from others on the forum.  Below is a link to a post I made last year about the setup that I think youíll find helpful.  I wrote it almost 2 years after doing it the first time, so donít have all the details on where I got the materials.   The wire clamps I bought in bulk online, but they also sell them individually at the big box hardware stores.  Hope you have fun with your first EarthBox garden!  Iím headed outside shortly to finish prepping my boxes so I can plant within the week!

Hi Brittney,

I'm a new EB user which is why I didn't comment on this post earlier. I would REALLY like to know what sort of support cage you have in those photos, specifically the wire.  The support posts look like rebar.  You've managed to do an impressive job of making a rectangular cage using fairly thick gauge wire.  Is it hog pen wire or something related to larger farm animals?
