Yes, indeed-- they do work! I planted some cuttings in the ones I made according to Gessieviolet's design (with a LOT of help from my husband, bless him!) and I'm attaching a pic... the bigger plant is Goose Creek, the slightly smaller one is Paul Robeson. Anyway, after I moved the cuttings from the 4 inch pots to the ebuckets, they took off like gangbusters! The Goose Creek is doing especially well-- much better than the original plant did. It's already got about a dozen fruit set on it and I'm looking forward to a decent harvest because I only got about 5 decent ones off the original plant before I had to pull it this past week due to what I think was septoria that I simply could not get under control. I love my Easi-lift bags, but I think next year I'm going to do other veggies in those and make more ebuckets for my 'maters!
