Here’s another great product that goes along with the Earth Day & Week theme – the Topsy Turvy Tomato Planter from Felknor Ventures.
Hubby has quite the green thumb. Every year he and my boys work on the vegetable garden and it produces tons of wonderful home-grown vegetables for us to eat throughout the summer and fall. This past Christmas, my Mom got my husband the Topsy Turvy Tomato Planter, and he broke it out and got it all set up last weekend.
This planter makes it easy for even someone like me (totally unskilled in the ways of Gardening) to produce a healthy and hearty tomato plant. The way it works is that this planter hangs your tomato plant upside down. Gravity does the rest – all the water and nutrients from the roots easily fall down into the fruit – producing tons of tomatoes. Having the plant hung also eliminates issues with fungus, digging and weeding and worm damage as it’s all hung up in the air.
We’ve hung it off of our deck (close to the house to hopefully keep the deer away) and I’m excited to see how it does this year. You can get the Topsy Turvy Planter at various retailers – I found it on sale on Amazon for $12.55.
