My grandpa's birthday was in February. Our gift to him was to come and plant tomatoes in our backyard. Believe me when I say I've never seen the man happier.So last Friday he came over, tomato plants and basil in hand. And we (or rather he) planted them all in these 2 large plastic containers my mom gave me. This is the only area of my yard that gets somewhat consistent sun, so if this works, consider it a miracle.
