I planted my first Earthbox garden in 2016 and was hooked after just a couple of weeks. I posted all of these on the old forum, but I cannot find them so I wanted to post again. I had 6 boxes that first year. I loved it, so I ordered 6 more and an AWS. I was not able to plant in 2017, but I am counting the days to start my 2018 garden! I still cannot believe how fast the tomatoes grew! The peppers did great as well. They grew very slowly for quite a while, but then all of a sudden took off and got huge! Most delicious sweet peppers I've ever grown - I grew 2 varieties, and my favorite was Marconi Red.

I grew 2 boxes of tomatoes, 1 box lettuce, 1 box spinach, 1 box sweet peppers, and 1 box with cucumbers in the back and bush beans in the front. I have a few regular containers with herbs & hot peppers, but they did not do well at all compared to the Earthboxes (hence why I ordered 6 more for the next one!)

I had 1 cherry-type tomatoe and 1 standard tomato plant in each of the 2 tomato boxes. I think I will only plant 1 cherry tomato plant per box next time - they grew so big they drowned out the standard tomato plants. I did have some problems with blossom end rot, so I will need to remember to supplement calcium this next season. I grow organic, so I'm not sure what I can use for the calcium - will need to do some research.
