Here's a trick to use with tomatoes (see below)


Here's a trick to use with tomatoes. 

I heard about it and decided to try it before I recommended it to you. If you have had trouble getting yield in the past from tomatoes in say 3 to 5 gallon pots, it might be the small root system.

This is the JMCANCB5T (4 GAL) pot shown sitting on a NSWC6000GL (10 GAL) pot.  I  transferred  two little volunteer tomato plants from seed into the 4 gal pot, they were about three inches high..  Neither plant did anything except grow, right where they are shown, but not in the big pot.  Every day I opened the door to let in the afternoon direct sun.  They took all the spring months to get this size, it was still to cold here to put them outside at night for fear of frost.   
I decided it was time to try this new method I heard about, give them more root room.   So I filled the 10 gal pot and moved it under the 4 gallon one still sitting in the same spot.   So then I had a 14 gallon root system about 30 inches deep. Within two weeks one plant started three little flowers.  In case there were no pollinators around just yet I did that myself.   All above the light colored area is new since mid June.
It was soon apparent that something had changed in the plants, they were beginning to grow better, the leaves looked darker, they got more flowers and the three I helped pollinate "took".  You can easily see in the picture the difference in the plants at about the tomatoes level.  The bottom is still light colored, all the top growth is healthier.   The plant could be really big right now, but when a new growth takes off for the ceiling I let it flower, then cut the leader off above that at the top of a metal wire frame to keep it  manageable.   There are about 30 nice Roma types started.  I say Roma types because these are from seeds that started themselves in a tub outside, and they look like Roma's lol.
The article I saw years ago also mentioned when the first pot is smaller like say a gallon you do this quicker, and at that point it's a good idea to cut the whole bottom out of the top starter pot.   This top pot is about an inch or two into the mix in the bottom pot, and it is tightly rooted into the bottom pot, I can't move it.
So if you have the room, all you need is a 4 gal and a 10 gal pot, and a tomato plant stand that is collapsible/reusable, 12" square x 48 inches high, and about 2  1/4 cu feet of planter mix or good soil.
I think with this double tub setup you can easily produce yourself a good supply from Aug into the winter.  This area is in a greenhouse now, I built that around it this year. so with the nice root system we will see how long I can keep them producing.
