Hanging Tomato Plant Update #2

I thought I'd just do a quick post today and show you guys how well the Hanging Tomato Plant is doing. Overall it seems to be doing great, but the heat is causing it to use up it's water quite fast that we water it daily and sometimes more and it's still drying up some. Next time, maybe only two plants per bucket, and maybe I need to splurge and get one of those Home Depot 5 gallon buckets.

Here are some pictures taken just recently. The tomatoes were picked that day and they were super sweet and absolutely delicious. (not to brag or anything) :)

How do you water an upside down plant? Doesn't the water just, uh, fall out? Just curious. I can't believe your tomatoes are ripe already- I planted some (not upside down) and they're still really, really green. Good post, as always! :)

You actually water it just like any other pot... from the top. What's good about it is you're watering straight to the roots. Yes, the water does fall out, but only after the soil has absorbed as much water as it can absorb. I would like to actually set up a small reservoir underneath using maybe a wick system to keep the plant from drying out completely. Maybe next year.

Thanks for visiting :-D
