Why Earth Boxes?

Fifteen years ago, I received an ad in the mail for these amazing gardening boxes that would produce an incredible number of tomatoes on a single plant.

Earth Boxes are low maintenance.

They don’t have to be watered every day.

It is impossible to overwater them.

There is no weeding.

They can be placed on my deck.

I decided to give it a try.  And they grow so much more…



March 20, 2019 – First Day of Spring

My summer gardening thoughts and dreams begin!

What is Earth Box Gardening?

Earthboxes are  a commercially available product that provides a labor-sparing method for growing vegetables and flowers.  When I found myself unable to garden in the ground as I had done before, these were a manageable way to continue to grow food for my table.  I live in central New Hampshire and in April have already begun planting Earthboxes for 2019.

The thermometer dropped into the mid-40’s Fahrenheit last night.  My 4 Basil plants braved the night and are thriving in the sun today.
