This is the nifty tomato planter I bought at Sams. (Technically, Mom bought it for me for my birthday -- or at least that's how I used the money she gave me).
There is a photo that shows the 4 tomato plants and how they looked after we planted them. The second photo is the way they look today. We planted four different varieties to compare how they would grow. Early Girl, Better Boy, Celebrity, and Jet Star. So far the Celebrity is ahead in growth. I planted herbs on the top. Sweet basil, Pineaple sage, Holy Basil, Purple Ruffles Basil, Cilantro, chives, regular sage. Lots of fun and no tomato staking or weeding!
