Canned Tomatoes

This Summer, I planted tomatoes in metal ‘Oscar the Grouch’ trash cans. Before planting, I hammered a few drainage wholes in the bottom and lined the base with fly-wire mesh so the soil wouldn’t fall out. As tomato plants don’t have long roots, the cans didn’t need to be filled entirely with soil. So to save space, I stacked the bottom half of the cans with crushed used polystyrene boxes that I picked up for free at the local green grocer. I then filled the top half with a good quality potting mix. I also planted basil and coriander around the sided. This is what they look like now.
