I tried this planter last year and never got the plant to bear fruit after flowering.

This year, the plants that I put in the soil are already producing fruit.

My god Man .... has anyone thought about how many great farm grown tomatoes they can buy for $12 + soil + seed + time ???

Yes, I know it's rewarding, but ok then, how about using a free plastic pail with a hole in the bottom ???
I just don't get it...

I've tried these twice in 2 years. The first time was a complete disaster ending up with a measly tomato-less plant. Yet the exact same plants in large planters not 5 feet away grew like gangbusters. Thinking I had done something wrong, I repeated the process the following (last) year. Same nonsense all over again. Same soil, same plants, same location and always carefully monitored to make sure it was kept appropriately watered. Same results as the first time. A scraggly, scrawny plant that bore a tomato the size of a marshmallow. Don't waste your time on these silly things no matter the price. Get an Aerogrow (which work very well) or use raised beds or planters if you don't have space for a traditional garden.

I am laughing like you but still wanted to give it a try. Damn Bay Area is expensive. Not enough land for tradition farming in my apartment.

People do not realize that NJ is called "The Garden State" with good reason. I grew up there and my relatives had tons of corn, tomatoes and asparagus. It was really something. But I wish I had lived at "the shore."

I'm picturing someone trying to slice a tomato by squeezing it with that contraption. :-)



Hey...don't knock the spoons! They make a wonderful crushed valencia stew! Sure you COULD make a pair with a saw and piece of wood or plastic, but isn't it so much better if you get a free piece of green vinyl with it?!

Genetics? The same reason it's not safe to hold a baby upside down continuously from birth?

Number and size of tomatoes? Type (name on package (or plastic label))? If you found a variety that grows non cherry sized tomatoes in a confined space then you really need to share!

So, given the recent news, are we going to see some huge number of Flip video cameras for sale at midnight (Central Time)?

Do they seem to grow better mixed like that? I'm getting ready to start ours (strawberries and toms). Mine are in a hanging basket instead of the bag. Hoping that they might hold the water a little bit better. Either way ... my only chance to have either. Our ground is full of rocks and so dry and hard, that we have cracks/ fissures all over the darn yard. Has to be better at least than what we get at Wal-Mart ffs.

Wanted to say something about this last night but I figured I'd check on it first.

Marijuana (female plant) - no...best case scenario is you would end up with no flavor and a whole lot of seeds...and a very low THC content.

Marijuana (male plant) - maybe but the fiber strength would be low so at most it'd be useful for short term paper products.

Opium - It'll work but like with anything else you'd have better yield with a pot [lol...pot].

Salvia - unless you like seeing death...

Of all the Woots- this was a stinker deal. Waaay too heavy to put on a hook. Ya need a tree and that would mean shade. When watering-the top gets watered and the water doesnt really get to the bottom. Stinker.
