Earthbox 2011

Written by Chris on March 19th, 2011

EB1: removed fertilizer strip, added the EB non-organic fertilizer, added 1lb dolomite. Did not replace any of the soil. I am guessing this is the second season for this box maybe. Planted green bean seeds, clockwise starting at water tube: Roma II, Roma II, French Filet*, Provider, Blue Lake*, Contender (replanted 4/18), Royal Burgundy*, Pencil Pod*, 3/21. (* planted these seeds 4/10, after the original varieties just kind of fell out of the soil or did not take off. So far the Roma II is thriving, the others look iffy–curled leaves, very unsteady and flopping over to the point of falling out of the soil).

EB2: removed fertilizer strip, added the EB non-organic fertilizer, added 1lb dolomite. Did not replace any of the soil. I am guessing this is the second season for this box also. Planted squash seeds, left to right facing EB with water spout on left: spacemaster cucumber, Johnny’s yellow multipik, black beauty zucchini, dixie hybrid yellow squash, 3/19.

EB3, first use of this EB: planted six peppers on 3/27: clockwise starting at water tube: Johnny’s Seeds Green to Red Bell Ace F1, Reimer Seeds Early Sunsation, Reimer Seeds Grande Jalapeno, Serrano (from nursery), Johnny’s Seeds Hot Ancho 211 F1, Reimer Seeds Poblano.
