    From the picture alone, I could not figure out what that thing in the middle was, like was it a PIPE in the ground filled with water ?

    So I read what he wrote: "Bryan used a 13 gallon kitchen garbage can to grow the tomato plants above but has since switched to using 5 gallon buckets because they’re a lot cheaper and easier to find in quantities.

    You could even use a larger can as long as you provide each plant with 5 gallons of water per week. For instance if you use a 5 gallon bucket and plant 2 tomato plants around it you fill the 5 gallon bucket 2 times per week. Or a 13 gallon can filled twice yields 26 gallons, so you could plant up to 5 plants around it.

    its a good idea. but i had a hard time harvesting tomatoes through the field fencing he used so i tied them up and then sunk a can next to it that had holes in it
