Topsy Turvy Upside-Down Tomato Planter

Does it work? Cool

Two caveats, one, is that the planter requires a lot of water; more evaporation since it's out of the ground and exposes more surface area. (it's science!) Secondly, it's heavy, and requires a sturdy hook to hang upside down. Well, it does work. Tomato and other plants do grow in the planter and it's good for small spaces.

My main reason for using the Topsy Turvy was to avoid the critters. But thinking about it now, it would probably would just as easy to build a platform off the ground for a planter box.

One more thing, I didn't find it that easy to use. (I had a hard time getting in the plant in upside down - it's not as easy as it looks)

A pretty fair review
