To round out the purchase I have bought:
A Tomato plant $4.00 (The set has to be sufficiently large to survive the transplant)
A Bag of peat moss to fill the bag $6.98.
Tomato fertilizer (OK I had that from last year)
And a stand to hold the bag high enough and out in the sun for 7 hours a day. $15.87
These tomatoes had better be good -- $35.85 will buy a lot of tomatoes!
Not all white elephants are white. Some are green.
