I’m hoping for a big garden this year, but all of my tomatoes will be Roma or paste. Fresh tomatoes give me canker sores!
One thing I can’t resist is a handful of grape tomatoes right off of the vine. What a better place for a “snack” tomato plant than right outside my front door?
I can’t remember where I saw this idea, but doing a Google search showed me many possibilities for growing a tomato plant upside down in a hanging basket. I took the pretty route and splurged on two wire hanging baskets.
This basket has a hole in the bottom. I cut an “X” in the lining and gently pulled a tomato seedling through. Then I filled the basket with dirt.
In the top of each basket is an ornamental pepper. The one in the middle is a seedling, but I planted some seeds from last year. Hopefully they will sprout to make some extra foliage.
According to the package I have 55 days before I can eat my grape tomatoes. In the meantime I will just have a pretty hanging basket!
