I've had nothing but trouble growing tomatoes in the past. In the ground, they were subject to all sort of diseases. In regular pots, I'd always forget to water them & they'd die. This year, I tried the EarthBox. And I'm having spectacular results! My tomatoes are almost 6 feet tall & are loaded with fruit. And the season is just started. I can't wait to get all my delicious tomatoes. This winter, I'll be trying broccoli in the same box. If you've ever had trouble growing tomatoes, give this a try.
