I love reuse. I love growing tomatoes. And, of course, I LOVE COMPOSTING. That is why I'm sharing one man's genius idea of growing tomatoes.
James Bryan had the fantastic idea to use an old garbage can with holes drilled in it as a way to deliver water and fertilizer (via compost) to four tomato plants surrounding the garbage can.
Here are his photos from when the plants were first planted and then at the end of June.
Check out the final photo (those are big plants!) and his full yet very simple instructions at Hometalk.
And then get out there and use that compost!
