Growing Tomatoes in Containers

Growing Tomatoes in Containers

We needed a different place to grow our tomatoes where they would get more sun and be accessible to water. By cutting clean, plastic 55-gal drums from a local cheese factory in half, and drilling holes in the bottom for drainage, I made these tomato containers.


Plant one heirloom plant per bucket. A soaker hose runs on both sides of the plants, secured at the top of the buckets, so I can water them as needed.
