you know what he's doing, right? He's building a brace to hang up his topsy-turvy.









you can just barely see the little tomato plant sticking out underneath

shhhh....our little secret - he doesn't know this, but, the rest of the tomato plants are actually in the OTHER bed - the one accross from where he's hanging up his tomato plant. We'll humor the dear - after all, he's my best help when it comes to BUILDING my garden! LOL!

LOVE him!

I hope his does better than mine did. You know things go the way of the pull of the sun. Mine curled back up reaching for that sun!!

My DH and I joke around about stuff like that all the time. (In a bad announcer voice) "You will get the Topsy Turvy garden, the Enoki Foot pads, and the Package Shark...all for the AMAZING price of only $19.95 (plus shipping and handling)...BUT WAIT! If you order now,we will DOUBLE YOUR ORDER for FREE!!!!!!"

Let us know if it works. And, BTW, your garden looks amazing, Topsy Turvy Tomatoes or not.

Mine too, I was just going to update you guys to let you know this gadget (as expected) sucks mud! DH admits it wasn't a good idea after all. He doesn't spend much on himself so I really don't mind the occasional gadget, but I sure didn't expect the plants to curl upward. eventually the weight of the fruit would undoubtedly straighten it out. I guess!

I'll keep you supplied with pictures as we go along. If it curls upward, we'll know. If the weight of the fruit straightens it out, we'll know.

This is going to be a fun experiment.

I thought of this thread today...Earlier in the evening my daughter's school had a "Bingo and Pizza Night" that I ended up not being able to attend because my son is sick...Daddy went with her and I stayed home with my son...He was a bit upset about staying home because he was really looking forward to going, but, he was in no shape to go...So, I made a big deal about how cool it was we got to stay home and play our own games...We played Candy Land, Chutes and Ladders, and Connect Four...In the middle of a game of Chutes and Ladders, my son says to me, "Mama, we need to get a Topsy Turvy." At first I didn't remember what a Topsy Turvy was and asked him if that was a toy he saw a commercial for and he said no...All of a sudden it hit me! I laughed and said, "you want a Topsy Turvy? That thing you grow tomatoes in?" and he says "yeah!" Then I asked him if he wanted to grow his own tomatoes and he enthusiastically shook his head yes...lol...Needless to say, he LOVES tomatoes...

Indeed! We had a tomato plant last year...I really didn't think we'd get a single tomato, but, we got quite a few!

My mom and dad had an extra plant they didn't have room for so they gave it to the kids to plant at our house...They were so excited...I told them they would have to take care of it 'cause well, it's hard enough for me to take care of the house...lol...I got 2 kids, 6 cats, 2 dogs and a husband, I didn't want no dang plant to take care of too!

Well, they did take care of it...for a while...They watered it every day for like a week then grew tired of it...Despite the neglect, that thing got huge! Unfortunately it was planted too late and none of the tomatoes ripened, but, we did get lots of green tomatoes! My daughter didn't care too much since she doesn't like tomatoes, but, my son was ecstatic!

Oh yeah, and, he's only 4 years old...LOL!
