01500Edible Wild Plants – Wild Foods from Dirt to Plate (from the Wild Food Adventure Series)

So many times we walk past plants growing wild that we have no idea what they are. What if there is a use for them? What if they are edible? This knowledge could change everything we know about “weeding”. Author, John Kallas, PHD, shows many of the edible plants growing wild…more

EarthBox Junior Garden Kit

535975_10151557759660134_731588181_nThe heat in Central Texas can reek havoc on plants during the summer. Earthbox has a super easy way to keep your plants well watered while allowing maximum gardening in even small areas. I received an EarthBox® Junior™ Garden Kit in Margarita for review. Let’s check it out.

EarthBox® Junior™ Garden Kit – Margarita web_jr_gk_mgrta

I am a huge fan of the EarthBox. I started using the Original EarthBox  last year to grow peppers. It did an amazing job. I was able to grow 6 different types of peppers in a very small space on my back porch. They grew all summer long with no issues of distress from the sun. I was actually still getting peppers this past November. Neighbors were all like WOW. How is that possible. It’s an Earthbox is all I can say. EarthBox is designed to maximize watering potential so plants grow large and healthy. You can see the details of how it waters from underneath the plants in the pic of the Original EarthBox with casters and trellis added at the left.

EB_IllustrationThe EarthBox Junior is the very similar to the Original EarthBox. It is simply a smaller version. Perfect size for growing herbs or even a salad garden right in your kitchen. Available in numerous colors these sturdy planters make wonderful gifts for garden enthusiasts and foodies alike. You can go to EarthBox’s website to see a planting guide to give you some ideas of what you can do with your EarthBox. There is even an organic kit for those that prefer an organic lifestyle.
