We are having huge success with our hanging tomato! The plant is huge and growing both up and down! We also have a morning glory sharing the trellis smile



We had to build a support trellis to keep the vines from hitting the ground smile

That's fantastic Lisa. My hanging tomato thing fell down and killed the plant. That was a bummer. At this point I have to wait until next year to try again.

Yes we're growing tiny tomatoes on this and so far we've had about 10 of them turn red. We have what seems to be billions of green ones waiting for their turn smile

Jilly - it was a learning experience, sometimes things work, sometimes they don't! Last year our chamomile plant didn't make flowers, this year it made lots of them. That's the fun of gardening!

Agreed. I now have three hanging baskets that I got used for a song at thrift stores - one will be for next years tomatoes, one for zucchini and one for summer squash.

I will not try tomatoes next year - the birds and squirrels ate most of them - they were on the deck in containers but it was just too convenient for them. I'll grow flowers and buy the veggies at the local stand.

I'll have Dan put the hanging screw in the wood when he gets out here in December - i could not get it in far enough to hold up the weight of the soil, plant and water.
