when I saw this most awesome tomato planter, which by the way,
Mark Cullen (famous Canadian gardener) endorses.
on soil and mulch, I passed on buying it...but couldn't stop thinking about it.
Along comes my friend Maureen, who gives me a unique tomato plant which her
neighbour gave her. It's an Ugly Tomato from Italy. Not sure if that's the real name
or not, but that's what she called it. She said it was really ugly, but oh so sweet!
I've already planted out my Romas and Beefsteaks in the veggie garden, so
where should I put it? When, aha! I'll make my own damn
upside-down tomato planter!
I took two hanging planters, one a size smaller than the other...
I then, cut out the bottom of the large one (the base).
filled up this pot with potting soil.
I took the other pot and filled it with potting soil and quickly inverted it upside-down on
top of the filled pot. (You may have to get someone to hold the bottom planter
with the tomato hanging out the bottom when you do this...I did.)
Attach the plastic hanger and voila...you can water through the top of the
smaller planter and grow your tomatoes upside down!
Thank god it landed against the fence instead of falling the other
way and totally falling apart!
I plan on putting some hooks placed strategically across the fence line
to swag the tomato plant over!
Cross your fingers it works for me!
