I haven't tried any of these but I do know that no matter what, rotten leaky tomatoes
will happen just because folks get busy and don't check them. We're not all perfect.
I would strongly suggest something like newspaper, sawdust or pet litter shavings on
the bottom to absorb any leakage that may occur to keep it from running all over heck
and back!
