I was sent an Earth Box to check out. I have been wanting one of these for awhile so I was really excited to get a chance to review one. I got to pick what color I wanted and I went with Terracotta. Earth Box is a wonderful way to container garden. I love that the Earth Box is so simple to set up. No weeding, no tilling. Earth Box waters from underneath so there is no worrying about fungus that can be brought on by watering from above. This is particularly a problem with melons and squash. We are fixing to move to town and I dreaded the prospect of not having a garden anymore.n. With Earth Box it’s possible to have fresh vegetable, herbs and berries in town. You can even use Earth Box on the balcony or roof of your apartment building. I am really looking forward to being able to garden in a whole new way.
I think Earth Box is great for those who are getting a little older and not able to til, weed and do the digging it takes for traditional gardening. Earth Box is a great gift idea for everyone. You can teach your kids about growing food. You can grow your own herbs for those who enjoy the culinary arts. Fresh foods are so much higher in nutrients than store bought fruits and veggies. And the flavor, don’t get me started on the flavor. With Earth Box you can be sure what is in your food. If you want to grow organic you can without wondering if your food is truly organic.
