Planting tomato using plastic bags

Assalamualaikum..

Recently i've visited some blogs .. and one of them I remember a blog by a grandmother about her homekitcken garden..and the way she planted vegetables there. It gave me a good idea of planting using plastic bags instead of garden bags, few advantages :
  • save space (you don't have to prepare garden bed that will take more space and you have to plan and look for location before make new bed)
  • mobile (you can shift anywhere that's good for plant in order to get more support or sunlight)
  • less work (no heavy works like making garden bed - just fill up soil in plastic bag)
  • Save time (less work)
note : note applicable for all veges such as cabbages, sawi, cauliflower etc that need bigger space.

Like our garden, sometimes when we planted lots of veges by cycles and we might run out of space to put more veges and some seedlings waiting to be transferred. It will takes time to wait for the plants that already in the garden to expired and ready for replacement.

I have some tomato seedlings about 3 weeks old which are ready for transfer. The seeds actually from the tomatoes that we bought from market, small fruit variety.  I thought of planting it because they matured much earlier than the one from bigger fruit variety. At least by planting more varieties would give more exposure and understanding about tomatoes.
Adopting from 'the grandmother's blog, i started to prepare some soils from garden and fill it in the plastic bags..
 Five plastic bags filled with soils are ready now,
So i choosed 5 seedlings for transplant,
 Small tomato transplanted,
After 5 small tomatoes transplanted, then i shifted them inside the greenhouse for temporary since outside can be very hot for them and if there's no cover and too much heat they might not be able to survive.
Inshaallah when the tomatoes strong enough and adopted to new place, they'll be transfer outside without having to prepare a garden bed for them.
For those who like to plant tomato at home can try this way cause it's more practical.
