Default Big Boy & Jet Star in Walmart grow bags!

My Big Boy variety of tomato plants are starting to ripen, along with the Jet Star. Both are indeterminate, I decided to try growing them in 5 to 7 gallon Walmart bags. I couldn't be happier with the results, the Big Boy have very large fruit that are awesome for slicing and making BLT's! The Jet Star can also be sliced or just eaten right off the vine both they and the Big Boy are among the best tasting I've ever had, so sweet in taste. The Big Boy are living up to their name and yielding 1-1/2 to 2lb fruit as the picture show 2 of each variety. I also inc. a few of the cukes I picked tonight.

Very nice!
I dream of a world in which chickens can cross the road without anyone questioning their motives.
