EarthBox Update — September 1, 2013

Wow! It’s September already! The tomatoes and peppers are still in full swing. The cucumbers and basil are hanging in there. Everything else is at varying stages of calling it a year.

Previous post here.

An overview from the deck.  (Clockwise from bottom left: cucumbers, peppers, basil, (top row) brussels sprouts, lemon cucumbers, tomatillos, three boxes of tomatoes. In the center it’s marigolds and bunch onions.) That light colored blob on the top right is a Brandywine tomato:

The raspberries are now established. Hopefully that’ll be some no-work goodness next year:

King of the North peppers. I knocked off a couple with the hose, so those became Friday night kebabs:

Brussels sprouts:

The larger ones are about an inch in diameter.

The cucumbers. They’re starting to look worse for the wear, but still producing more than we can eat:

The whole box is listing to the right a little bit.

The Stupice is buried in the back center of the 3 x 2 stack of tomato boxes. They’re doing ok anyway:
