I would like to grow some tomato plants in containers because the animals eat everything I plant and I am not going to be able to get a fence up at all this year. If I put things up by the house they leave it alone. So, my questions are....what kind of containers would you plant them in? Anybody have additional tips on growing them in containers?

You can grow cherry tomatoes(Tiny Tim)in smaller containers. I've grown them in one gallon flower pots that were tall and skinny.
