Have you had any luck with the Topsy turvy? I used it one year and didnt have alot of luck, it started out as a beautiful plant, then I couldnt keep the water consistent enough and lost almost all of the tomatos to bottom rot.

Is that a shot glass?

I haven't put them in yet, but I certainly hope that doesn't happen. We got the TT for Christmas one year and I just thought I'd give it a shot. Not so sure now though, lol....

Not in this house.. It's an anchor measuring cup... :)

If I was going to use it again i would use something like miracle grow potting soil and I would water 3 times a day with measured amounts. Like I said they start out looking very nice, but then as they get more roots and the days get hotter it is hard to keep their moisture consistent.
