Isn't this sweet...

My grandiose plans to start a garden were downsized drastically when I realized my back will not handle me prepping, planting and taking care of it. Sad.

I was watching TV a while back and saw this add for an upside down tomato planter, I honestly didn't know what to think about this contraption? I remembered it after I had my gardening realization so went to good ole Google to learn about it. It seems like its a good system and may just work for the bend-over challenged people such as myself that want to try and grow vegetables so I purchased one at a local Bed Bath and Beyond to try out.

Bill and I went yesterday to a local feed and seed to find some tomatoes for the planter contraption. The one I purchased can grow several plants at once out the sides and not just one out the bottom so we came home with 4 varieties: Roma, Peace, Isis Candy and Black Cherry. I just LOVED the names of the tomatoes, hopefully I'll enjoy their taste. lol

My to-do now includes: Find a place to hang the planter contraption, I saw the stand that they have for it but it turns out its dangerous and has hurt so many people that it was recalled. Who would of thought that? lol

My brother in law grew his cherry tomatoes like this last year and they turned out awesome!
