It's been in the mid 70's, and the nights are only going down to mid 40's. We're expecting rain for the next few days, so I'll plant all the herbs this morning.

We have a similar one (through Gardener's Supply) and it's great. Like Babe said, it is really heavy! You need to plan support for 60 - 80 pounds. We had a special stand made and it works well. Our's tipped over last year in a storm and broke off the plant. We still got one perfectly round tomato though! Hopefully we'll have better luck this summer!
only one tomato?
