A couple of month ago I once again saw upside down tomatoes for sale at the nursery. When I got home I noticed all those little tomato plants growing wherever I had applied my homemade fertilizer from the worm bin…. So I spontaneously decided give this a try. With a 5 gallon bucket, some potting soil and a drill the plant was hanging there in no time (detailed instructions are all over the net, just google for upside down tomatoes).
Not only was I curious how the plants would grow, but also what kind of tomatoes I would get! Turns out we must have had some smaller vine tomatoes at some point and those are the ones that sprouted from our compost :)
I also setup a bucket with 2 holes and 2 plants per hole, but that get’s a little crowded and since the plants have to share resources amount of grows in the two buckets is about equal.
Here is the plant on day 1:
