Anyone grow anything in Mels mix in Earthboxes? I am thinking of putting a couple of them by my wooden fence and doing some pole or yard long beans....

Yeah, I built several last month but only had enough courage to transplant a few houseplants. They're still alive, so I guess I'll try a few veggies now.

MM is great in all containers especially self wicking ones. Do a search on self wicking and see all the various gardens. Boffer has a self wicking tabletop and I have what I call "pond beds" (because of the pond liner). They are just giant earthboxes.
