Yet another great idea for small-space gardening that we've found this week: the hanging tomato planter!

We love the concept of upside-down vegetable growing. This hanging tomato planter suspends tomatoes upside down, so there's no need to stake them, and the tomatoes don't touch the ground, so they don't get flat and mushy on one side. Also, they're high up in this planter, so they're out of reach for ground critters like deer and rabbits.

Tomatoes are known for needing daily waterings in the summer, and this planter is self-watering, so this planter helps reduce gardening chores.
