Last year I planted several pepper plants in my Earth Boxes. Earth Boxes mimic the profesional gardeners setup but on a smaller scale. When you use Earth Boxes for vegetables you add a layer of dolomite to the potting mixture (and for some reason my dog Emma LOVES this stuff) . She tore off the plastic screen covering the potting mixture and proceeeded to dig out all the dolomite and ate it all. She destroyed two Earth Box sets. I ended up putting the Earth Boxes on top of a table to keep it out of her reach.
So after Emma destroyed the setup, the plants stopped producing and I left them alone for a year. Imagine my surprise when I went out there this morning to clean them up and prepare them for this year. This is what I find:
You can see in this picture how Emma tore up the pastic screen covering up the soil and dolomite.
3 more peppers.
And this is Emma, she's as bad as she is sweet.

So, what are YOU planting this season?
