A few weeks ago we planted a tomato in one of those upside-down planters. Like last year, the plant started turning up.
I had an idea.
I'm sure you all have seen those science projects where they manipulate the light source to get a plant to grow in a certain direction. I thought I'd try that same idea here by wrapping a trash bag around the planter.
A few weeks later....
The sad little guy was wilting and he wasn't any straighter than before.
Well, ya win some, ya lose some.
Any yes, those are squash blossoms you see there. :)
