First was the Topsy Turvey tomatoe planter thingy. My Dad has ordered some and suggested I get one since I am not a good vegtable gardener - I let my brocolli go to bloom because I prefer flower gardening. Here it is all filled up with dirt and TWO tomato plants. I was going to buy two of these contraptions but he only had 1 left. The instructions said you could put two plants in it-----we'll see. It was easy enough to assemble but a word of advice - it gets heavy when you fill it with soil and very heavy when you water it so plan accordingly.
When I saw these I always wondered how the bottom worked. Well, it's a spong with a slit in it and you put the plants through the slit. I guess I must have moved mine a bit when filling with soil because the photos I am not perfectly positioned. Drat! You can't fix that for risk of breaking off the plants. This device is actually much higher quality than I expected.
Next are the aqua globes for automatically watering plants. I have one teeny little area that I cannot reach with the hose and wouldn't you know that is exactly where I want some potted plants! This looked like a good solution.
Here they are all filled up and ready to use. They are glass and look much nicer than I expected. I was worried they were glass with like a decal for the color/design but they are not.
The green one........
The multi color........
And finally the cobalt blue one. When I left them they were doing a little girgling as they began to work. Between these items, and what I bought at Green Thumb today, I have done my part to stimulate the economy - at least in the gardening industry!
P.S. The third item was the bra strap adjuster things but I wanted to keep my blog G rated, LOL.
