Good Idea: Freestanding Four-Arm Plant Hanger

On Monday we wrote about growing potatoes in a bag. While browsing around on the same website for space-saving gardening solutions, we came across the Freestanding Four-Arm Plant Hanger.We really like this idea as it makes good use of vertical space, and leaves much less clutter on the ground. Some vegetables grow well in hanging baskets; tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers, and snap peas, to name a few. Growing vegetables in hanging baskets also means they aren't sitting on the ground, so they are less likely to have soft, flat, light-colored spots on one side, and less likely to be eaten by critters such as deer, rabbits, and other ground-based garden nibblers.
