Questions and Answers / Cannot get anyone to call me back
« Last post by Ttwntec on June 09, 2020, 03:28:31 pm »
I ordered the tomato system and never received the netting. I cannot get anyone to call me back. I have left 2 separate messages. One on the day I put it together about a month ago and yesterday when I needed something to tie the tomatoes up to because of the rain.

Questions and Answers / Re: Dimensions

Thanks for the response!  It's odd that this is hard to find... they aren't even consistent with how they describe width, height and depth.  They list width before height on the Junior but height before width/depth on the regular.  A diagram would be nice.

That's also a substantial difference between what Whisenant Farms lists, 1.5" difference in depth and/or height:
  Junior =   23 x 9.5 x 7.25 OR 23 x 8 x 7
  Regular = 29 x 11 x 13.5 or 30 x 15 x 12

I asked on the Earthbox Facebook page but they only answered with one of the dimensions (23" L x 9.5" W x 7.25").
Is it possible that the sizes have changed and that Whisenant Farms is using an older one?

Maybe I'm in a unique situation here and it doesn't matter to most people, but I have a small railing & deck area and need to know exactly how many I can fit!

I can't find the dimensions anywhere online.  What is the width x length x depth of the regular and the junior box?

I'm interested in hanging a junior box from a railing and I want to know what size would fit (I'll probably have to build a custom hanger.)
It would also be interesting to get a rough estimate of the weight, although I can estimate that by just using the weight of water (which is heavier than soil).

Those measurements below are from the Earthbox website.
The Whisenant Farms website says (30x15x12) and (23x8x7)

The weight would be: the box, the media (2cubic ft or 1cubic ft) (some media are heavier), how much water is wicked into the media, and the water in the reservoir (3 gallon or 1 gallon)

I believe the problem is direct seeding into the EarthBox. Many smaller seeds don't germinate well in a large volume of mix. I would try again in smaller containers, 2 or 3 inch, and then transplant the seeds that germinate.

Yes, Iíve used earth boxes for years but never tried spinach before. It is at a window inside my sun room, facing south/southeast. Two rows of Burpee ďspace hybridĒ seeds separated by the fertilizer strip in the center. The corners seem to be doing ok but the seedlings that came up mid-row all withered and died. I have kept the water reservoir filled. Just canít imagine whatís going on. I used new soil purchased this year from Earth Box and followed all the instructions...thanks for whatever you might suggest!

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 June 03, 2020, 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.
