Last night I planted 4 kinds of radishes and some lettuce in an EarthBox. I’m really excited about the radishes because I’ve never grown them before, and because they’re supposed to be really fast! They'll be a nice addition to the lettuce for salads.
The lettuce seed is Jericho, because it’s still quite warm here (and will be through November), and the radishes are, from left to right (for future reference in the EB):
I grew radishes last year in the EB. I think they were Cherry Belles. I never used an EB before that so I have no clue if I did it correctly or not. I did get Radishes but not like they were supposed to. Hence the reason I do not think I did them right and I know I did not care for them like I should have. So I am following this as well!
one can't but appreciate those stands for the EB! I find it fantastic for those bush beans!
I couldn’t agree more. I was at first upset about the price, but they are so, so worth it. Sturdy too. They make me never want to plant tall things, requiring the EB to be on the ground, again.
For those low, back breaking (for me) boxes, I bought a little chair on wheels from Ikea for about $25. It’s a lifesaver. I’ll see if I can find it. It also has holes in the seat so if it gets hit by sprinklers, the water just drains. Though it’s not a garden chair by any means. In fact I believe it’s a child’s desk chair.😂
Me too, and it’s remarkably comfortable for my back. IKEA had an entire line of demo chairs to get on and roll around. This was the most comfortable for me. Frankly I’d love it in my office instead of the fancy expensive one they gave me. And this is only $25!!!
