Some of you may remember the upside-down planter experiment (if not, you can read it here), and I thought I’d give you an update. I know there are some other folks trying out similar things, so hopefully we can all find out what works best.
I think they’re doing really well! And the smell is heavenly. I am not sure if it’s because they are in this type of planter (there are two plants here), because they’re being grown organically, or for some other reason, but these are the most fragrant vines I’ve ever grown. The smell of tomato wafts through our porch windows occasionally.
Tomatoes, of course, are not the only thing growing in my planters:
Lovely, peppery nasturtiums. This is the first one, today there are two more, and by tomorrow we’ll have enough for salad. I am hoping to use these for my clients, as well.
The baskets are beautiful, fragrant, and something I am likely to carry on even when I move to a place with space for gardening.
