Oh No! I Drowned My ‘Maters!

In a previous post (Topsy Turvey ‘Maters) I reported my experiment with upside-down tomatoes.


I am guessing (well, it’s more than just a guess) that the peat moss method should not be attempted by rank amateurs like me. I think the peat moss hold ways too much water, and if it rains (like it did), well.. nothing can really take that much all at once. Except maybe some plants, that is.

Fortunately, only one the tomatoes is certainly dead – but, the other two are looking pretty bad. Hint – if the tips of the leaves start turning brown and get all crunchy, you’re either under- or over-watering yours plants. In this case, I was drowning the plants.

Plan B.

I have purchased a nice patio cherry variety which I will try planting next. This time, however, I will use regular old to fill the ̶;bag”. And I will also include

Plan C.

Which is to plant at least one more plant in a container, or possibly out in the veggie garden. I’ve got to hurry though – it’s almost too late in the season to start, unless the plant is pretty good already.
