Has anyone ever used those upside-down hanging containers for tomatoes?

I am looking through the garden catalogs already and I wondered if those containers really work? It looks like planting veggies in them would be so much easier to harvest than the normal ground planting...

  • What you got to lose. Try it. My mom raised veggies in 5 gal. buckets and it worked. So give it a try.

  • It's called hydroponics. Works great on, well, let's just say a variety of produce, so if you google it, be sure to look up "hydroponic tomotoes" lol
