Jesse was a sweetie and brought me home a hanging tomato plant a few weeks ago :) I hate weeding a garden, so we thought this would be the perfect solution. We followed the directions and planted the little seeds in the medium that came with the kit. We then covered the container with plastic to create a greenhouse effect and when the seeds started to sprout, we took off the plastic and here is what we have so far:
Yup...that's a 9x13 metal baking dish! I didn't have anything else to put them in. The taller, more abundant ones are grape tomatoes and the little ones on the other end are the full-size tomatoes.
Here is a picture of what they will look like as soon as we can plant them in the basket. The little ones go on top and the big ones hang from the bottom.
I also planted a big tomato, small tomato, and pepper plant in my garden outside just to be safe. A summer without fresh tomatoes just won't do!
I'll keep you posted on how these turn out. I should be able to move them to the basket in a couple more weeks. For now I just have to keep them watered and in the sun :)
