Upside-Down Tomato Plants

When my parents leave on Monday for their trip, it will be my responsibility to water my mom's yard and plants. They've put hoses everywhere so that I really won't have to lift anything but the hose.
My Step-father has a project going where he is growing tomato plants upside-down. He saw it on a Gardening show or read it somewhere, I'm not sure. Anyway, at first glance it is an odd looking thing. The advantages are suppose to be less disease, and the fruit doesn't rot on the ground. SO we'll see. I hope I can keep them alive until he gets home.

Robbin, A friend of mine grows those too. She calls them "Topsy Turvy Tomatoes." It is a conversation starter, for sure!

It sure it Aisling, they look quite odd for sure. I like your friend's name for them, it suits it perfectly.
