This is awesome! Your plants look so happy! I have a similar problem: lots of concrete where all the sun is and nowhere for food to grow. So I am going to have buy that book/follow your tute and try this next year (landlord's kind permission permitting...I don't think he'll care). Thanks for sharing! Cheesy

omg, that's awesome!!! I'm totally getting that book!! We live in a townhouse near downtown Dallas and I have a small piece of dirt that lazy residents like to let their dogs pee on (arg!!!) and there's a huge patio that we all share (but no one uses??)

Jacki, blog at http://mac-aroni-n-cheese.blogspot.com/ Check out what cool stuff I'm up to!

This is what I'll do next year! Thanks! We live 2 floors up but have a decent balcony. Right now, the only thing growing there is an amazing pot of herbs.

I've been planning on growing plants for the longest. We've always had a garden when I was growing up and now I know how to get my own regardless of the space!
Thank you so much for the inspiration!

Anyone interested in a personal swap?

Omg i am absolutey in love! This isn't just a great idea for people with no space this is a great idea for anyone who doesn't have good soil in their yard or don't want to the spend the money (expensive like you said) to make a raised garden.

We have a yard but I think I am going to do this in the spring. Brilliant Cheesy

I just ordered that book through amazon and I can't wait for it to come in. I'd never even heard of container gardening until I read this post. All your plants look so great! I finally have a decent balcony this year that gets a ton of sunlight. I'll definately be trying this earthbox idea when spring gets here, and i'll be using your photos as a reference if you don't mind. haha.

Great job with the tut!  And, thank you for introducing me to that book-- I'm going to check it out at the library tomorrow.  Smiley  Smiley  Smiley

Thank you for your amazing tut and pix! I have the spring fever really bad and this has sparked my enthusiasm for playing in the dirt. Last year we lost almost everything to the new local groundhog - we live right in metropolitan Cleveland and the groundhog was a bit of a novelty until mass destruction took place. I think these boxes, along with floppy fences, may help us retain something from the garden this time! Plus, I can use the concrete and deck space to our advantage.
Thanks again, and happy growing to one and all!
