Growing Tomatoes upside down

This is our effort to grow cherry tomato's without having the dig up our yard. We are growing the tomatoes up side down in two litter bottles of pop filled with 1/3 vermiculite, 1/3 manure and compost, and 1/3 peat moss. We grow the tomatoes from seed. I bought 7 iron hooks from Lowes and attached them to my desk railing. They are very easy to water, and hopefully will produce tasty tomatoes. I'll keep you posted on their progress.

Best of luck with your upside down tomatoes... I hope they work, I never was able to produce a significant crop from them and always fought keeping the soil mositure just right.

In my opinion, the best way to support your tomato plants is with a traditional stake. Try this one.. I've been using for 3 years now.
