Here is my version of the upside down tomato plant
I use large plastic bucket (They use more soil than the store bought type)
And I can use the type of tomato want
All I have to do is drill a hole in the bucket and I
put a 1/2 thick foam rubber disc in the bottom
so that the soil dos not leak out when I water them

You have found an inexpensive way to get some delicious tasting tomatoes that are easy and convenient to pick. Very creative!

I tried this several years ago, but the results were not as good as yours. Well done.

I’m eventually going to have to try this. Wonder if one kind, determinates -vs- indeterminates, are better than the other on these hanging things. Anyone have any experience or knowledge on that?

All I know is that the one we tried was a dismal flop.

I used old hanging planters and stuck the plants through the drainage holes.If I had gotten some hot weather earlier I would have done o’kay.My plants have grown but not fast enough to beat the frost I am thinking.!
