Last year I purchased a cherry tomato plant from a family owned nursery/roadside stand. The tomato plant was in a small plastic pot so my husband transplanted it into a large plastic pail. First he drilled holes in the bottom of the pail for drainage. Filled it 3/4 full of dirt and then used potting soil. We harvested the tomatoes and they were delicious.

Remember to fertilize your tomato plant twice a month. They need both food and water to grow. (04/09/2010)
