I am working on building a homemade earth box. I would appreciate the “recipe”to fill the box.. what kind of soil, how do you determine how many plants and I hear you put fertilizer on top of the soil but what kind – 8-32-16? When and how do you water. I will appreciate all information I can obtain.
I confess I don’t have any experience with these things. I assume you’d treat them like any other container planting. Can anyone offer more specific information?
In the end, this may be the most important thing about frost: Frost slows us down. In spring, it tempers our eagerness. In fall, it brings closure and rest. In our gotta-go world–where every nanosecond seems to count–slowness can be a great gift. So rather than see Jack Frost as an adversary, you could choose to greet him as a friend.
