So after 2 years of " Topsy - Turvey Tomato " ads at 3 A.M. ........ I bit .
I planted an Upside Down Tomato tonight.
It's a pain in the ass, and after I finished watering the transplant, I asked myself. " Why did I do this ? " It's a " Bush Goliath ", from Home Depot. $3.50 each, and a new bucket and lid for $2.34 and $0.98 ea. Plus 5 gallons of soil made by me, (the best part of the deal). After some thought I see the point of this ......... no cage, because tomatoes need to stay off the ground. A few weeks in the greenhouse, and outside she goes, if I can figure out how to move 5 gallons of wet soil, & not crush the " Bush Goliath ".
