After digging a hole wide enough and deep enough I punch a bunch of holes with a phillips screw driver for drainage then I put the bag of potting soil in the hole.
I am going to plant several tomatoes this way. In this row I will place six bags in holes
Next I cut the tops off the bags and add water. I want to soak the soil over night making sure the soil is soaked up all the moisture it can.
Another angle and as you can see I put what we call T post next to the bag to hold the tomato cages and my EZ wall plant protectors. I use EZ wall plant protectors not only for frost protection but for wind protection.
All together I am going to plant about 25 tomato plants like this in different areas of the garden so I can not only see how each is doing but I am going to feed these tomatoes a variety of fertilizers to see which fertilizers do best in my clay based soil.
One of the two different Potting Soil mix's that I am using. I am using potting mix it works better in this application than just garden soil.
Well the tomatoes did very well grown in the bags I did feed them every other week with a 4-6-5 organic fertilizer. In the spring I watered every three to four days, during the summer I watered every other day. Next season I am going to do the same except I am going to plant closer together and I am going to prune the tomato plants....thanks and hope this helps ....Dusty
