These are my 3 Earthboxes I planted on March 13th. Left one has 2 Chocolate Cherry tomatoes. The middle one Snow Peas and 2 Siberian Tomatoes, and the Right one Buttercrunch lettuce. In the background you can see other lettuce I planted in containers the same day are 1/3 the size, same for the tomatoes to the far right in one of my raised bed gardens. So I'm SOLD on Earthboxes. Last year my homemade Earthtainers were a great success but now the costs of the Rubbermaid containers have shot up it isn't really a savings over the official EB. If anyone on here is also a member of Facebook I ask you to consider becoming a fan of Earthbox. Apparently, if they get 6000 fans by 4/22,(5379 as I post this) they'll be offering the gear at 20% off on Earthday, and so for the folks who like the equipment this is an outstanding offer. So, please, check it out, and see if you feel like becoming their fan. Thanks!
