An Upside Down Garden Of One
OK, I admit it - I really do get intrigued by As Seen On TV products. Sometimes they are deals and sometimes they are duds.
So while we were in the hardware store last night I was looking at big pots to put some tomato plants in. We tried planting in the ground once before and Joe, that wonderful golden retriever of mine, tromps through them like they are a personal gift to him. Anyway, I didn't really find pots at a price I liked, but I did find the Topsy Turvy Upside Down Tomato Plant Hanger. I also bought a Big Boy variety of tomato plant.
This is what it looks like when all is said and done. You can see the plant at the bottom and the water coming out from the first watering. I wonder if the little plant is getting a head rush from being upside down like that???
Time will tell if this was a good idea or not. We did agree last night that we'll still buy some pots too. Though I will point out that the directions inside the Topsy Turvy say the plant should get to be 6 feet tall, so really it should provide all the tomatoes we'd need.
