Questions and Answers / AWS can it be used on a second story deck?
« Last post by kellywdvm@hotmail.com on April 24, 2021, 08:12:13 pm »
I have 4 earth boxes and I am planning on getting a few more.  I was looking to add in the AWS.  Our boxes are on our second story deck.  The hose connection to the house is right below the deck.  Will the AWS work if the boxes are essentially a floor above?

Thanks

I'm back to shower cap, not the elasticized. I buy row cover and cut and tie the corners and stretch over my EarthBoxes. I learned this tip at the EarthBox Garden Center in Ellenton, FL from Blake's son.

For tomatoes, I plant 2 or 3 boxes every year.   Will usually pick from Celebrity, better boy, early girl, Roma.   Havenít had good luck with heirloom and stopped.  Probably used big boy too sometimes.   
Cukes are from seed, and not always same type.   JalapeŮos every year and a mix of other peppers.   Havenít had good luck with bell peppers.   Could be too hot.   
Even basil struggled last year.   Very frustrating. 

Question for you...
Are you still using plastic tucked in the sides for covers instead of the shower cap?   I did that for years with great results.  Iím just trying to eliminate things to see what might be happening.   I had better luck with half the sun exposure.  Odd.   Itís certainly hot here, but not like the Deep South.

The plants look healthy. Do you always plant the same varieties?
