April’s Spread the Love winner is… Lanny and she wins…

A hanging tomato garden! Recently a few of these baskets came my way-and I wanted to share the bounty. Don’t have a clue if they’ll work-but if anyone can figure it out-it’d be Lanny-so I’m glad she won!

Don’t forget to click on one of this month’s commenters and go for a visit-I know you’ll be glad you did!

    I am so stinking excited about my gift!!!! I’ve always wanted to try one of these pots. I’ve just picked up some of this year’s tomato plants from my oldest daughter, a far far better gardener woman than her mommma, but I taught her and got her started, so I am taking the credit!
    I will for sure keep everyone posted! Gotta run now and finish off the rest of the three hundred items on my google reader that piled up from my little break.

    Congrats to Lanny! That’s a cool gift. In fact, I had been thinking about trying to grow my tomatoes upside down. Have fun with it! Sorry I haven’t been able to check in as much with getting ready for the move!

    The hanging tomato plants look interesting. I’m thinking about trying them out. We’ve gotten most of our garden planted. Your blog is looking great. I really enjoy reading it. Keep up the excellent work!!!!

    I’m caught up now. The accounts of the singings reminded me of my own roots. We used to love to sit around with a guitar or two and play and sing. I still sit alone in my office and wail away while strumming my Big Baby Taylor. I enjoy your posts immensely. You have a real quality blog. Unintended consequences, like not knowing where a big rock pushed off a mountain might land, have crippled our land as politicians who act like kids push stuff out of D.C. to run uncontrolled across our country.

    this year, as our allotment is far from ready for any action i have put two tomato plants in a hanging basket that we usually use for just flowers! its haning under our eves in a sunny spot outside the bedroom window and seems to be doing well~lots of flowers and one single teeny, tiny tomato!

    Congratulations to Lanny! 🙂
    One of my blogging friends has a similar looking contraption. She posted a picture of her tomato plant in it this week, and it appears to be coming along quite nicely. Here’s a link to her blog if you’d like to see it:

    Congrats Lanny! I did an upside down in a five gallon Bucket. It worked pretty well. You have to water the heck out of them. They dry out quickly. Mine produced really well, but my chickens really liked how easily they could reach them. Hang it high!!!! ( and get a water wand)
    I planted basil in the top of the bucket….. I called it “My Almost Spaghetti” pot.

    Tipper, this is your cousin Sheree, Hazel’s daughter. My brother and your cousin David has planted hanging tomato plants in addition to the ones in his garden. He was amazed at the yeild of tomatoes and the ease with which they were picked. Try the hanging basket, they work well. Sheree

    I haven’t tried this yet but I did grow my tomatoes in some upside down 5 gallon buckets last year and they did great.

    I’ve never used one but my sis-in-law just got one. She’s anxious to see if it works. Me too!
