For the first time in my life I am trying my hand at upside down tomatoes. I’ve heard about them for years, but have always had my doubts. Considering how poorly my tomato plants produced last year I figured this year I may as well give them a shot. Things could hardly turn out worse.
So I bought four of those “Down Under” planters, rearranged the wind chimes (remember them?) and hung four plants from my porch eaves. Rafters? Roof? The thing in the picture. To my amazement they seem to be doing pretty well. I’d say confused, but healthy. If you look carefully you might see some actual tomatoes forming on the plant near the post.
The two on either side of the post are cherry tomatoes, my wife’s favorite. The other two are heirloom tomatoes called Old German. First time for heirloom tomatoes too. Rumor has it heirlooms taste better than the big name ones found most places. We shall see.
Hopefully this project will turn out better than my overwintering of the Poinsettia. Remember him? I was hoping a move to the outside in the springtime would rejuvenate the poor thing.
Didn’t work out too well, did it?
