Topsy Turvey

Last spring I mentioned the 'Topsy Turvey' technique as a way to grow tomatoes and that I was going to give this technique a try.

This system involves growing the tomatoes upside down. I planted three of these, hung them from large shepherd hooks pushed into the ground on the south side of my house in the full hot south sun. I can report that I would give this method two thumbs up.

I planted three types of tomatoes using this system - a cherry type, roma and a steak type. The cherry tomatoes are already ripening. The other two have large tomatoes on them that should be ripening soon. Bacon, lettuce and tomato sandwiches with fresh from the garden tomatoes are not to far off.

Enjoy your day!
