Tomato update

The "tomatoes in a box" are growing nicely.

They are heirloom tomato plants purchased from a local nursery.

Purple Russian and Eva Purple Ball.


Striped German and Rose.



I'm also trying "upside down tomatoes".

5 gallon buckets are used for containers. Drill a 3" hole in the lid and in the bottom of the bucket.

Mortgage Lifter and Hillbilly tomato plants have just been added to the buckets.

The plants have been adjusting to the buckets for about 3 weeks. In another couple of weeks, I'll hang them upside down and see what happens.
