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.

Cherry Tomatoes and Earthbox Peppers

Harvest update. Getting a few more cherries coming along. Both the Sungold and the White Currant are leading the pack (note, the links are to the sources of the seeds I grew these plants from). The Sungold’s are great, good size cherry tomatoes. Nice orange color. The White Currants are more yellow, are also tasty, but are quite a bit smaller.

The Orange Bell is finally ripening. Should be pickable in a few days.

Some of the jalapenos are forming with chocolate brown streaks along the length of the pepper. Looks pretty cool. Harvested several jalapenos and serranos.

First poblanos are forming finally, about 39 days after I planted the seedling. The first jalapeno appeared much sooner, by the 27th day or so after planting the seedling. Still no harvestable peppers yet, but getting closer!

Jalapeños are popping out nicely, and finally am getting some flowers on the poblano, which should mean peppers forming soon.
