Bought a Topsy Turvy

March 11th, 2010 at 09:20 am

For those of you who don't know what a Topsy Turvy is; it is a planter that holds a plant from an upside down position. They have been featured on TV infomercials.

Mine is for tomatoes but will grow other vegetables as well. My supermarket had them marked down from $10.00 to $4.99.

I have a friend who lives in a townhouse that has a small backyard patio that is fenced in with a private concrete fence. She grows the small grape tomatoes in a good sized pot where she has staked the plant. It gives out an abundance of tomatoes. Her patio is very attractive because she has other vegetables growing there instead of plants.

You have to have a small plant to grow there first. We'll see how it goes. I have to plant my beefsteak tomatoe seeds soon.
