We are growing tomatoes and a pepper in Topsy Turvy planters this year and so far, they are doing very well.??Topsy??Turvy??allows??you??to??"Grow delicious homegrown tomatoes??without the backbreaking work!" and I'm always in favor of avoiding backbreaking work. This also avoids having to continually stake the tomatoes to keep them from resting on the ground and rotting.??
We tried this last year with a homemade unit made from a 5-gallon plastic container. Squirrels chewed through the top and got in the soil. No problems like that this year.??
