Green Thumb, not I

if I plant something, it is going to die. That's a fact.  No matter what I do my flowers never seem to survive.  I wish I knew how much money I have spent on hanging plants in my lifetime, only to have them dry up, burn up, or die from too much moisture.  So, don't ask me why we decided to plant tomato and pepper plants this year, but we did....

Jalapeno and Banana Peppers
When we were making our purchases at Home Depot I told the cashier that this was my first "As seen On TV Purchase".  And actually, I was really excited about it, but also felt like we should be ordering it off of the infomercial so that we could get two for the price of one, plus a free chopper, slicer, a set of knives, storage containers and one can only imagine what else, all for $19.99 with separate S&H, of course.

So yes, without even having to think about it twice, we purchased a Topsy Turvy! Actually we purchased two, one for peppers and one for tomatoes.  I am thinking this is a sure way for us to plant some produce and them actually survive.  Surely they will survive.... Has anyone tried these and had any luck? 

Heirloom tomatoes
My biggest fear to our little cityfied farm is this guy right here.  There is a reason we call him the wonder mutt. If it is destroyable, he will destroy it. I don't even like to think about what he did to our hammock. Air Jordan has nothing on this dog.


I will keep you posted on the progress of our new plants and hopefully in about 70 days we will have 30+ pounds of tomatoes and more peppers than we can think about eating! Hey, a girl can dream, right?
