Haven’t we all seen the Topsy Turvy, upside down tomatoes and wondered how those would do in our garden! Yesterday, we picked up some gorgeous heirloom tomatoes and can’t wait to plant them.

I want to try those hanging tomatoes, but consistently balk at paying the price they demand for what looks like an old tablecloth. Well, imagine my excitement when a little online research turned up some fantastic upside down resources that will help do-it-yourselfers grow a garden upside down!

I got all excited and was ready to try several of this, until I realized we have nothing to hang them from in this home, so it may have to wait until next year.
