Trash Can Tomatoes: How to Plant & Grow Tomatoes

Trash Can Tomatoes: How to Plant & Grow Tomatoes

Tomatoes are at the heart of most summer gardens and a successful harvest will keep you coming back for more. Planning, planting and dreaming. The simple thought of homegrown tomatoes, their scent on a hot day and meals made outstanding because of their earthly, sweet flavor is enough to get you through the dreary days of winter.

Learning how to plant, prune and grow tomatoes is easy with a few step-by-step tips. And the trash can planter is just one fab, upcycled container idea — perfect for SmallSpace Gardening. (I love reusing old things and making what might otherwise be mundane new again.)

Plant in a container or garden beds, either way you’ll soon be picking and eating.
