UPSIDE DOWN VEGETABLES
Here is a project I had wanted to get done for awhile. It's like the upside down hanging tomato plant kits that have been advertized on tv for awhile. Only this is the homestyle version - Tractor Supply buckets (heavy-duty, sturdy plastic) with about an inch and a half hole drilled in the bottom, hung from heavy duty bungee cords (on sale: 4 for $5)into loops of chain threaded around the iron beams on the edge of the roof. I had bought two bell pepper plants, a squash plant and a cucumber plant in anticipation of this project, but by the time it actually got done, they were a little puny. But I threaded them through the buckets and filled about half full with soil. More soil and compost will be added later. Then I watered them and hoped for the best. If this works out well, I'd like to add more, and hang them all along the back of the house, too.
