Cheap Planters for Tomatoes
Fast Container Garden
I had limited space to plant a garden but love fresh Vegetables. I could not till or dig a garden so the easy solution is this. Takes about 20 minutes per plant. It is an environmental great way to recycle those old 5 Gallon Containers.
5 Gallon bucket
Topsoil and Miracle Grow Garden Soil.
1/4 Drill Bit
Tomato Cage or Stake.
First make sure the container is clean. I used an old Drywall 5 Gallon Mud bucket or you can buy one from any home Improvement store.Then using an 1/4 drill, drill 5 holes in the bottom for drainage. See Photo A and B
Next get some gravel and put about 2 " of gravel into the bottom of the bucket. See Photo C
Fill up bucket with a mixture of 1/2 top soil and 1/2 Miracle Grow garden See Photo D
Plant Tomato plant and put in a stake or a tomato cage See Photo E
Put it in a sunny place. Tomato's require a lot of sunlight. Keep it watered.
