Should I/Can I repot my Bush Early Girl Tomato Plant?

8 years ago

On a whim at the supermarket I just bought a well established Bush Early Girl tomato plant in a container - it seems to be about a 10 inch container. It looks lovely and healthy and already has a few small green tomatoes.

Having given up my vegetable patch after years of frustration trying to combat the animals eating my plants, I'm hoping that a container plant on a raised porch might be safe from uninvited guests. I've never grown in a container before. If I just leave it as is, will the plant have enough soil and nourishment to bring fruits to maturity?
Should I fertilize?
Does it make sense to repot, or will I lose whatever tomatoes are already growing?
