Here in Wyoming, the growing season is about three days long, so I’ve been trying to grow vegetables inside (without success) for several years. My latest attempt, the Patio Garden sold for growing tomatoes upside-down, has actually been moderately successful. I bought some Buttercrunch lettuce starts at Wal-Mart a few weeks ago and planted them in the top of the Patio Garden, and they have grown enough that I was able to cut leaves yesterday to make a nice Caesar salad!

Meanwhile, the upside-down tomato saga continues. Of the two heirloom plants I put in last month, one died and one is thriving, still trying to grow UP. No flowers yet, though. Yesterday, I transplanted another tomato plant into the empty hole where the other plant died, so I’ll see how that one does.
