Have you ever seen the upside down tomato growers on late night TV?
Yeah, you have to admit, it's pretty ridiculous how they can charge someone for that. Why not make your own from your recyclables??
It's very simple, and it cost me nothing to make it. All I really needed to buy was a tomato plant.
If you're going for something simple and easy to do to get nice, plump tomatoes, I'd recommend this project. If you're not really for the aesthetics, you can skip some steps.
Step 1: Gather Materials
It's in all our blood: Our ancestors used to do this...
Gather...Not so much the hunting today, but getting your materials/tools is very useful.
- X-Acto knife
- Metal Snips or Scissors
- Electrical or Duct Tape
- Empty & Cleaned Gatorade Bottle (32 Oz or larger) or Milk Jug
- Metal Clothes Hanger
- Plastic Bags (Preferably not white or black)
- Glue (Rubber Cement was used in this case because it was on hand)
