Thanks for the tutorial! I'm really glad that your tomatoes worked out for you. I'm going to have to try this for peppers as it never gets hot enough in Seattle for them to get very big.

ok so i'm stupid then Huh

i understand the "cut the bottom", and the pebbles and the soil.  but what i DO NOT get is the "sock" thing that holds the bottle.  how is it made?  do you sew a square shape and then poke a hole big enough for the "spout" part of the bottle to stick out? then thread through the burlap with rope strong enough to hold it up??
i gotta try this! i live in the city and we have a "Green House" on top off of our roof--but we only have potted stuff and something hanging would be perfect to make use of the large beams up there!!

This is such an amazing idea! I've been dying to grow something besides "Lucky Bamboo" but haven't found a way to do so without annoying the parents with a plant on the table inside or letting the ground squirrels eat them up.

The "sock" is really just something to make it look pretty. I used burlap cause the dirt doesnt really show and it holds up nicely in lousy weather.
Does that make sense?

Wow!  That looks great.  I recently moved into a second story apartment and I've been wanting to grow some veggies and herbs on my patio - but I don't seem to be having too much luck because it is relatively shadey through the day with only a good hour or two of sunlight in the morning.

Are there any small tomato types that grow okay without too much sun - or are all tomatos very sun demanding?

I'd love to try this with chillies as well - providing my husband promises not to pick and eat one directly from my garden again!  At my old apt...I was growing habanero plants and he picked and ate one of the habanero peppers.... Little did he realize that home grown, organic stuff tends to be much stronger and more flavourful than shop purchased veggies.  I nearly had to figure out on the spot how to drive him to ER because of how hot the habanero was ;P  That'll teach him to be macho!

I just planted my upside down tomato plants. Right now they're hanging in the window of my basement suite, and as soon as the threat of frost disappears, I will move them to the outdoors. As I currently have no curtains, they make my home feel so much more private... most organic act against peeping toms ever!

hmmmm...I'm not too much of a tomato expert  Grin, but last year I grew 4th of July's. The front porch where theplanter was only gets sun in the morning and than is in shade all day, and they grew pretty well.
