Crazy way to grow a bumper tomato crop

When you think of tomatoes , you probably think about nice healthy soil, maybe trellises or stakes, and maybe, I don't know, hardy heirloom seeds. What probably does not come to mind right away is a BUCKET
Who knew, but a simple plastic garbage can OR BUCKET could be the secret to growing a garden tomato crop with the most voluptuous fruits and leaves that you have ever grown. . Do you want to know the  secret? OK, I'll tell you.
 Started by buying a small, round, plastic bucket , drill holes in it  around the bottom rim, and "a second row up about ten inches." Bury the wastebasket so that the second row of holes are just above the ground.  FILL the bucket  with two large shovels-full of compost top with hay or straw.
PLANT four tomato plants around the bucket , and put up a round tomato cage around them. Every two days, Fill up the little Bucket  with water. Easy, eh?

 What a winner

and this process gives rapid growth with usually a bumper crop so give it a go.

Easy to make and I really like to use leftovers, spinach, or fresh veg but you can use anything you like. I also use mozzarilla  cheese, peroni and or cold meats.

Pizza Dough is also bread dough so it is easy to make. lol

  1. Preheat the oven to 400. Flour a work surface and roll the dough out into a rectangle.
  2. Start layering the meat in the center, leaving an inch or two along the edges. Add provolone and mozzarella. I used chunks of mozzarella but grated would probably work fine too.
  3. Combine the egg yolk with a couple tablespoons of water and brush the egg wash around the edges. It’ll help the dough stick together when you roll it up.
  4. Starting along one long edge, gently roll it up.
  5. Pinch the edges together to seal it. Tuck the ends under and pinch them together.
  6. Place it on a baking sheet, seam side down. Coat the top and sides with a little olive oil. You could sprinkle it with a little granulated garlic if you like.
  7. Bake at 400 for about 20 to 25 minutes.
  8. Cut it into slices.Serve with sauce alongside.
