Last summer, I watched as this lovely family planted (a beautiful variety of) tomato plants in their yard in wooden boxes. I know, it doesn't sound that exciting. Oh but it is.
Their boxes are much larger and are handmade, and of course, filled with more exciting varieties of tomatoes; but I'm in this for the food and so I stuck with varieties of the trusty favorites.
I recreated this exciting tomato plant box myself, with a vintage wooden crate found in a dusty corner of an antique store. I just added a few wheels since the soil and plants make this one heavy planter, used some plastic garden liner stuff from HomeDepot, and TADA!!!!
I took this picture last week and already my plants are loaded with blossoms and have really taken off height-wise. It's going to be a sweet, tomato-filled summer for us!
