New Things to try

Not long ago, a friend sent me a website that showed how to grow potatoes in a bag of dirt.  I'm not much into growing potatoes.  They are cheap enough in the store, but the beauty of this website is it had links to other cool planting ideas.  As I checked through the other links I found one that showed how to make an upside-down tomato planter out of a white bucket you can get for free at any bakery.  On the market these planters, called 'Topsy-turvey tomato planters' cost any where from $10 - $20.  I was so excited about this idea I immediately rummaged through my garage to find a bucket and lid and set to work.  I'll post the website next time I write.  

I am waiting for the plants to get themselves established before I flipped them upside down.  I can hardly wait.
