Tomato Container Garden: Seeds Planted!

I bought three 2-cubic foot bags of potting soil this afternoon. In the past, I filled six 5-gallon containers per bag, with each contaiimg_1518ner filled near the rim. Today, I decided to take a chance, driven by my fondness for thriftiness. Filling the containers about 2/3 full, I was able to fill seven 5-gallon containers per bag. As you can see in the photo, I filled up an astounding twenty-one 5-gallon containers! Wow! And, I decided that they all be filled with tomato seeds! I will have a tomato-packed summer, nature willing.

I labelled each container with the tomato variety planted: Aunt Ruby’s German Green, Black Krim, Green Zebra, and Rainbow Blend Cherry Tomatoes.  The containers are movable, so as the plants become more lush, I can move them around to accommodate. Pictured also are my apple and pear tree saplings.

I planted bush bean, green bell pepper, and snow pea seeds in the containers next to my kitchen. It was a great spring afternoon!

CONSUMER ALERT UPDATE: The non-fruit parts of tomato plants are poisonous if ingested. The seeds from apples and pears are highly toxic if ingested.  More information on toxic plants can be found here:
