Re: "Earth Box"

Friends,

Just checked my mail on the way back from depositing the last few days' 
veggie scrapings into the Clinton Community Garden's compost (a large black 
"Gar -BAHGE" bag as comedian Jonathan Winters used to say).  The snow from 
our White Christmas covers the lawn and the back garden vegetable beds.  The 
bees are hibernating, in large part, with some intrepid scouts sighted 
occasionally, hovering over the cut flowers by the local Korean groceries, 
surprising their Mexican workers to no end.  The neighborhood kids have built 
a snowman, complete with a carrot nose, and believe it or not, coal eyes 
(must be from the Public School nearby that still has a coal-burning furnace 
and a stoker - the conversion is supposed to be made next summer. )  

Anyway, here's the website of your "Earth Box": 

http://www.earthbox.com/

Quickly glanced at, it seems to be another kind of "self watering" container. 
The plastic can leach or not, depending on its composition, but generally 
most plastics are inert. The manufacturer has specs on the type of plastic.  
A written inquiry would probably be best.

Best wishes,
Adam Honigman
