theres nothing like fresh tomatos, but based on what I've read about these you'll get no tomatos. I'll grow mine the old fashoned way.

I followed all the instructions
I put 2 tomato plants in the tomato one, and about 25 in the strawberry one
I watered them as scheduled
I fed them plant food.
I got ONE strawberry out of those 25 plants, about the size of an M&M.
I got 2 tomatoes, each about the size of a golf ball before they went bad and moldy.
Which means that these things either suck, that my thumb is blacker than Flavor Flav's, or else someone was feeding the plants rat poison at night.
I'm going with a combination of the first 2, since these things are ass-ugly. They're essentially nothing but nylon sacks with a hole cut in the bottom.
My wife bought some as well. Last year -
it was very sad - all My tomatoes in the actual garden were laughing atthe ones being tortured in these contraptions.
no yeild - the sprouted and grew well - the plants looked good but not any fruit at all - weird since my garden ( right side up) produced so many that i was giving them away - dehydrating - cannong and eating them as fast as we could get it all done.
the upside down pots will stay in the shed this year -
might be that some other plant would do better in these? although I do not know why they would advertise them this way if they would grow something else better.
