If it is a normal tomato, not one specially for hanging baskets, there will have to be one plant per largish pot and it should be on the ground with a stake or tomato pole to attach it to. When re-potting a tomato you can bury the bottom of the stem, an inch or two, in the compost and it will make more roots.
The long straggly stems of the mint should be pruned to encourage more growth from the bottom. As I said before, when you use it you cut the top of the stem of which will stop it flowering too soon and make it produce sideshoots. Don't just pick off single leaves.
