I finally put these together (the plants in the brown bags) last week to get them going. So far the basil has sprouted nicely and the tomatoes are taking their sweet time making an appearance. So I wait and hope, and boy do I hope, for some gooooood tomatoes this summer. I'll need a large pot to put them in as I will not put them in the ground, or maybe I will. I really can't say since I have no idea what I am going to do with my yard. But I am looking forward to eating them no matter what happens. And the basil too.
