It is worth noting that Earthboxes become a bit addictive. After buying one and having such a successful growing season, I have accumulated five more. I find that the price difference between the regular Earthbox and the organic EB fluctuates on Amazon quite drastically. After my initial organic Earthbox purchase, I have purchased a few regular (non-organic) Earthboxes for anywhere from $10-30 cheaper than the organic box and just not used the synthetic fertilizer that comes with it. I bought a 30 pound bag of organic fertilizer at a local nursery for $30, and that bag of organic fertilizer will last me years and years. So it's worked out for me to be cheaper to buy the non-organic Earthbox and not use the fertilizer it comes with. Also, be sure to check out the Earthbox forum on the Earthbox website. It's very helpful and thorough.
I bought 3 more of these to grow more veggies since the soil around our house is questionable for prior owners using pesticides. With this system I can use organic soil. Also, plants love growing in these containers. I planted one of my tomatoes in a very large pot, fertilized and used same soil, and watered every time I watered the earthboxes and got only 4 tomatoes from it. I lost count of all the tomatoes I got from 4 in the earthboxes and they just kept growing out onto the deck floor. I finally let our local mockingbird have all he wanted to eat because there was plenty for us all : )
It was easy to assemble and the instructions were clear. I bought some good quality potting soil from a local nursery and followed the directions from there. I put two small roma tomato plants in it and watered it daily.
Perhaps it's just my bad past experience in growing tomatoes but I was astonished at how quickly these plants grew. Lots of flowering and there are loads of tomatoes on the vine waiting to ripen so far. I did put tomato cages around the plants to support them. Should be quite a crop.
This thing is kind of expensive for what it is but if I can grow tomatoes for years in it the investment is more than worth it. Might get another next spring and put a couple of beefsteak tomato plants in it.
If you are disappointed in a growth of a plant, it can be the weather that year, or a variety that does not do well in your area, or a mistake prepping the box and letting the box go dry. I live in Southwest Washington State. We can have wet summers and some long dry summers. I have had disappointing tomatoes some years, some reasons was the plant and some the reason the weather that year was too cool and wet. Don't get discouraged, maybe a different vegetable will grow better in your area.
All I know, I keep expanding with these boxes to get more wonderful tasting vegetables. It is gratifying to pick off the deck, then prep or cook, and eat the vegetable within 1/2 hour and the freshness is nothing you can get from a store or even a farmers market freshness.
