How to Grow Vegetables in Containers
My Topsy Turvy Tomato Planter
I recently bought a tomato upsidedown planter and i must say i love it. I love how the plants turn around the other way to grow soon after they are planted.
Last year i lived in my home untill it forclosed and i was forced to rent an apartment. I had grown corn, potatoes, peppers, onions, tomatos, peas(my daughters favorite), and yellow beans in my garden. This year I am renting an apartment with no land. I love to grow vegtables, so i bought the tomato upside down planter at walmart for 10$ and one of those green bags with wholes that are used for flowers. The green bags look so plain to me so i said to my husband, "why can't we design our own"? We then went to biglots and bought a big tarp, a grommet gun at walmart and some extra large grommets, the kind used for shower curtains, for extra support for the wholes. .
It took some time but we made a few that were blinged out. They turned out to be excellent mothers day gifts, with strawberrys planted in them.. My landloard liked them so much he decided to make his own.. In the green plain bag i plainted peas, which i had started in my house a couple weeks prior. I also bough a extra large plastic flower pot and planted potatoes in it. I got some cucumbers planted and when there big enouph i am going to see how it works to plant them in some containers. Many vegtables can be grown in containers with the right soil and enouph sun light. Corn was one vetable i never thought you would beable to grow in a container but apparently one can, maybe that will be my next project.
Everything is growing much faster in the containers as apose to last year when everything was in the ground. I am going to show more pictures as the plants progress.
