It all started with marigolds ...
« on: September 01, 2018, 10:27:48 pm »
I ended up growing some marigolds last year. I liked them.
Then I got a "rescue azalea" from my church's Easter flowers.
So I went to Lowe's to get some marigolds this spring.
They had PEPPERS!! And HERBS! And tomatoes!

And somebody told me about EB.
SO in addition to conventional containers, I ended up jockeying one EB full of herbs, one with peas, podding as we speak, and a root&veg with carrots and radishes.
At the sale I got 3 more regular EBs and 1 more R&V and while I fight pests on this years crop, I make plans for next years.

This is fun!

I thought your marigold post was about planting marigolds in the EB... :).  I always plant either a marigold or basil plant in my tomato boxes and have had good insect control with them.  I tuck it into the extra hole for the water tube..or make a spot if my own covers with parachord.
I plant between 12-20 boxes in tomatoes for the past 12+years.  I have 40 regular and 10 juniors which I donít use as efficiently.
Interested in following your successes with the root veg boxes.
You will love Earthboxes and am sure you will also.
