My brother’s back yard…ghetto tomato planter

Darryl and Shanes Ghetto Tomato PlanterOkay, I’m not making TOO MUCH fun of my brother and nephew but how funny is this picture?  My brother decided he wanted to plant his own tomato’s this year.  He got those bags which I used last year and they work great.  He got a shepard’s hook but alas, one morning when he got up, it was all bent over from the weight.  So he did what any “normal” person would do.  He and Shane went about making their own “hanger” for it.

I say it’s hilarious and good thinking.  I’m pretty sure it won’t fall over now!!  Come on guys, we’re not laughing at you, we’re laughing WITH you.  If your not laughing, hurry up so we can all laugh together.

    Well, I’m too dumb to know what the bags and hangers are all about, but something about that picture doesn’t say “tomato garden” to me.

  2. Joy says:

    SKL, you plant the tomato’s in the bags and you hang them upside down, then they grow towards the sun. The only thing wrong with this pic is that the tree’s in the background don’t let you see the tomato plants. I’m LMAO!!!

    Creative… odd… unique… somehow kind of cool…

  4. SKL says:

    OK, I think I get it now . . . .

  5. Joy says:

    Darryl, we need a pic of the plants alone without the trees in the background. Could you hang something behind the plants so we can see them? Like a 600 thread count sheet perhaps!!! LOL!! Tears of laughter are pouring out of my eyes right now!

    You guys are all jealous LOL. You watch pretty soon everyone will be doing this, it will be as cool as sagging your pants.

    I have never seen such an odd contraption before, at first I thought it was our showers. That is what our outdoor showers look like, you get single and twin. Hmmm is it so that Joy doesn’t steal the tomatoes?

    I need a “farm” explanation as to why so high up, here I can understand the lions stealing etc, does Maddie eat tomatoes? She is a nose licking dress wearing lion (scarier than the african breed).

    Ok ok I will just google this.

    LMAO!! When Joy told about this I couldn’t exactly picture in my head. GHETTO!!!! But way to use your melons guys!!! Oh too funny!

  9. Joy says:

    Sanity, they are up so high so they don’t hit the ground. Maddie only steals the cookies I bake for you!!!

    When push comes to shove you gotta do what ya gotta do. It also works good for watering just climb up the ladder and there you go.

  11. SanityFound says:

    Aaaah so no snails can nibble them? Ok I suppose that makes sense lol…. so now you are telling me it is Maddie NOT you stealing my cookies? My thighs are very unhappy about this!!!

    “…it will be as cool as sagging your pants.”

    An urban farmboy?

  13. SanityFound says:

    Darryl I am dangerous on a ladder… they always fall over, apparently it is because one thigh is fatter than the other … makes it a bit unbalanced ya knows. I blame it on Joy’s Cookies!

  14. darryl says:

    LMAO You might need a strong man to help keep it balanced.

    Hey, at least you used your noggins to come up with a solution to your problem!!!

    This is just great! I love the concept of it. Something like this would really work well with peas and green beans. I stake them up but with a ladder, you could just put like a clothesline and move them up as they grow. Now I can say I’ve seen everything.

  18. Thats actually not that bad of a set up. Its the first time ive seen anyone use a ladder for support, but two hanging tomato plants weigh quite a lot so I guess it makes sense.
