Earthbox Update

Saturday, April 17th, 2010

Squash is coming along nicely at day 35 since direct-seeding in the Earthbox. The Eight Ball variety is winning the race at this point–seems much more vigorous that the other varieties. Second is probably Multipik, followed by Zephyr. The cucumber I planted isn’t worth mentioning yet–very slow growing at this point.

Now we just need to get some bees involved.

Peppers are starting to take off. Very interested to see how they do in the Earthbox.
