Hi, Carol. I made two self-contained container gardens based on your information here. Are you the Carol at Dave's Garden who is so knowledgeable about tomatoes? If so, nice to see you -- I am Gardenwife there, too.

No, I am a retired music teacher living in northern Michigan in the middle of the National Forest. Learned all I know about 'maters from my gram! but then discovered these earth boxes.
Hello, I have built the Earth Boxes as you instructed and planted Eggplant and Green Peppers and used cow manure, top soil and peat moss. I have had them planted for a about 3 weeks and they are doing great except I have these tiny mushrooms starting to grow thru the tops where the plants are and thru the water holes. Will this hurt the plants? Or is there something that I can use to make them go away without hurting my plants? I am a first time grower and am not sure what to do. Thank you in advance for your time.
