I've been sticking my toe in, we have one Earthbox...I'm trying asparagus, though I'm beginning to think that wasn't the best choice for an earthbox. We have 2 of those upside down planters, one with tomatoes and one with cucumbers. We also have strawberries in a container.Atunah said:I wish I had a garden, I would go insane. When I grew up we had everything growing, from Rhubarb to Potatos to strawberries to Cauliflower. We did it to save money as we didn't have any.
Unfortunately I have to live in apartments so I am a little limited what I can grow. Best growing medium I found are Earthboxes. I have had mine for 10 years now. I can't grow anything like squash as they get so big they take over my balconies, so I stick with Peppers of all variety, herbs and such. I don't really pay for anything other than the seedlings. If I had more space, or again a garden and a greenhouse, I would grow from seed which is cheaper. The soil in my Earthboxes is good for 4 grow seasons at least. All I have to do is replace the fertilizer strip each year. And put water in the tank .
We already have some of the peppers now.
My dream is to one day live in a house and I can grow more stuff.
I am pretty sure it would be cheaper to buy at the store, but this may actually make me eat more instead of just not buying them at the store.
