How to grow tomatoes

While searching in the net for a good source on how to grow tomatoes, it surprised me to know that there are actually different ways to plant tomatoes.  The most common, of course, are planting out in the yard, in the garden, in a box, and more.  But there is one method that caught my interest - growing tomatoes Upside Down!

I found this article on growing tomatoes upside down from wikiHow.  I chose this to share it with you because it looks ornamental hanging from the ceiling.  This is useful when you live on limited space.  Tomatoes are very tolerant plant; they can grow easily and having your own assures you it's chemical-free.

Imagine having tomato plants hanging somewhere in your house such as this one.

Planting tomatoes

You may use any kind of big containers, preferably plastic containers.


1.  Set up the hanger

Choose a sunny place indoor.  Your tomato plant can be hung from a hook in the ceiling or tied around a beam.  Use what works in your place.

2.  Select a small tomato plant

Plants bought or grown from seed are both fine choices.  Water this plant well and set it to one side.

3.  Take the large, clean plastic containers.  Open the lid and cut off the bottom part.  Tie string or twine to the edges of the cut end of the container for hanging.  Punch out the holes using a hole puncher, or use a sharp tool to insert holes through which the string can pass.  Knot the string in place in loops to attach to the hangers you've made.

4.  Take the tomato plant out of its original pot.  Gently set it upside down in the container.  Gently feed the plant through the pouring hole, so that the tomato plant is hanging out of the hole, with the roots still inside the container.

5.  Fill the container with a mixture of good compost and garden soil.  Then water it.  Take note that it is important to set up the hanger first because it is impossible to put the plant on a surface without damaging plant.

Planting tomatoes

 You will start picking fresh tomatoes about 60-85 days after planting seedlings in the garden.  Fully ripened tomatoes tastes much better than picked early.

Good luck!

Don't ignore tomatoes!

I would like to share a very helpful article about keeping one's youth.  There are many cosmetic products available in the market nowadays that could make us look young.  Some known products and said to be effective but cost much.  Other beauty products are discouraged because they contain harmful ingredients.  Also, it is sometimes too tiring to follow the 'how to apply and what to apply' during daytime and during nighttime.

You have an option.  If you love tomatoes, you can maintain your youthful skin.


There is a recent study released in the UK acclaiming tomatoes as key factor in maintaining youthful-looking skin.  And what's more - eating tomatoes reduces appearance of wrinkles!

Tourism Website Designs

While working on an online contract, I came across this neat and great website in New Zealand - the tourism campaign landing page of 100% Pure New Zeland.  The whole page showcase the beautiful nature of NZ, the people and festivities.  Really nice!

This one is in Thailand, an invitation to the country's "Amazing Thailand Grand Sale" that runs from June 15 - August 15, 2012.

Japan tourism website shows latest features on heritage, indulgence, gourmet, adventure, modern art, pop culture/anime...

Australia's official tourism website has nice features, as well.  However, in my opinion, it's not very eye-catching.

With the rising number of IT talents, India's tourism website is not at all bad. It's comprehensive such that you can view places of interest in each region.

I know there are more amazing designs of official tourism websites.  Watch out for updates!
