Should I try planing in the ground?
I have been growing tomatoes with varying levels of success (mostly due to seed, seedling source) for 5-6 years. I am up to 6 DIY "Earthboxes" made of 18gallon storage bins.
I place the containers in the same spot in my yard and every year I get "volunteer" plants sprouting up... I used to always remove them but last year I left them alone and they did much better than my containers every did (I blame that on my april vacation and an overzealous watering by my mother in law ;) )
SO: I can block off a section of my smallish yard with landscape timber, mix in some composted manure from home depot and try to plan seedlings in that... but the question is - should I?
everything I read was always about tomatoes go in containers... I never even tried to grow them in ground
your opinions please.
