Garden Experiments

This week, at Pop pop's clever suggestion, we decided to try hanging a few tomato plants up-side-down in 6 gallon buckets. We read some articles that said tomatoes grown in this fashion are more resistant to disease and pests. Daddy drilled 2-inch holes in the lids and bottoms of the buckets, then we carefully threaded the plant through the hole in the bottom of the first bucket, and filled the rest of the bucket with potting soil. We left them sitting upright for a few days, and today, we hung them up. So far, they are doing quite well.

Very cool! I've always wanted to try hanging tomato plants. I'll wait and see how yours turn out ;o)
