Ever tried an Earth Box?

I bought my first earth box a few years ago. Since then i have planted it several times and I'm always amazed at the speed at which things grow, and the crop yield from vegetable plants, tomatoes and peppers mainly. .

I was fascinated by its hybrid hydroponic idea, and wondered why the earth box folk, had never modified and enhanced their original creation. So I decided to try some experiments with some inexpensive plastic pots, within pots.

Wow.. i was on to something! It was… Continue

Our barrel is about 2 1/2 to 3 ft high and round. If you look at my pictures again I think you can tell. We got our new ones at Ace Hardware for about $12 each? Can't remember for sure. We used the Mel's Mix (Mel Bartholomew's "The New Square Foot Garden" book, but think I will try some local compost next year. We have friends who tried both this year and the local compost far out produced the Mel's Mix. This year we planted the Yukon Gold potatoes and they truly are delicious! Next year we will have them again, but we will be adding a barrel of small red potatoes and maybe some Sweet Potatoes. Check out the following link: Have fun with your experiment. We certainly did this year. Hopefully next year will be much better!! Deanna

Barbara, thanks for your interest. I have to admit that it did not turn out as great as we had hoped for, but, we did harvest some small potatoes and they were so delicious! We had enough for a meal of mashed potatoes with chili, broccoli and cheese. We got a second harvest of close to the same size, and still have not made it to the bottom of the barrel! I suspect we will have gotten about three good meals from our harvest this first year. Next year we will continue the experiment. However, we will have three trash barrels and three different types of potatoes. We will also get them planted much earlier, I am afraid the middle of June was a bit late! So check back next summer for the continuation of our potato barrel experiment.
