What will you grow tomatoes in this year?
In the ground?
In bags or soft-sided containers?
I received my Tomato Growers Supply catalog today. OMG there are so many, many choices! Seriously, I don't know how you would ever decide unless you had a farm and unlimited time to tend them. I know there's another thread or two going on which tomatoes you'll all plant, but after looking through the catalog I'm interested to know how you will plant them.
Someone (is it you, Tom?) has the amazing method of the planter within the planter sunk in the ground. That looks great but I'm not going to get to that project this year.
Some of you have raised beds and I know that's been very successful.
I am interested in the bags I saw in the catalog. Has anyone used those? Did you purchase the expensive ones they sell or make your own? I'm thinking heavy contractor trash bags with some big holes punched in the bottom and a layer of weed cloth in the bottom would work just as well. If the outside gets too hot in the sun you could mulch up around the sides for some protection. Is that reasonable? They use them for potatoes too.
