Saturday, November 21st, 2015

Late planting of EB3, trying spinace in one row, kohlrabi in other row.  Planted 11/21/15.

Lettuce 2015

Monday, October 12th, 2015

Just planted lettuce, 10/12/15.  Earthbox 1: Red Sails on top row (row w/o water spout), Black Seeded Simpson on bottom row (with water spout).  Earthbox 2: Little Gem on top row (sans water spout), Lollo Rosa on bottom row (with water spout).  Lollo Rosa seeds too old I guess, some never sprouted, had to plant red sail in the bottom row middle two spots in EB2 (11/8/15).  Planted one cilantro 11/21 in EB2 where red sail never came up.

2012 Earthboxes Ready

Saturday, April 14th, 2012

Finally planted this year’s earthboxes. Did green beans in one, peppers in one and we’re trying strawberries in the third one, for the first time. Decided not to do squash this time, have not had much luck with it the last few times.

First 2011 Cucumber

Saturday, May 14th, 2011

First Earthbox Spacemaster Cucumber harvested today, weighing in at 12oz. Also got another Black Beauty Zucchini. Black Beauty is proving to be quite vigorous–growing much faster than the other squash I planted.

First 2011 Squash

Saturday, April 30th, 2011

First Earthbox squash picked today. Black Beauty zucchini weighing in at 280g. I fear my squash may not be long for this world, however, as the other day I spotted the dreaded squash vine borer moth buzzing around the plants, depositing its eggs of death all over the squash stems. I tried to scrape off the eggs I did see, but I will not be surprised to see my squash shriveling up in a matter of weeks.

5/1 update–picked one more black beauty 169g and first dixie yellow at 190g.
