Having lived in apartments throughout my entire adult life, I’ve never considered gardening an option. And to be honest, I’ve never been much of an outdoorsy type of girl. So, when my boyfriend’s mother gave me an EarthBox for Christmas two years ago, I sort of thought she’d lost her mind. The gift remained stored in its shipping box beneath my bed until just about a month ago, when I finally decided to give it a go and plant my very first garden. Well, I am thrilled to report the short-term results are fantastic! The EarthBox makes gardening SO EASY! Yup, this city girl is growing peppers, lavender, lemon verbena and marigolds! …on a teenie tiny apartment balcony! I’m kicking myself for ignoring this precious gift for so long. I’d strongly recommend EarthBox to anyone. It’s amazing and so much fun!
