    A Hangy-upside-down-thingy For Tomatoes

    We transplanted the little tomato plant into one of those hangy-upside-down-thingies that they are always advertising on TV.   We have VERY VERY clever raccoons around our neighborhood, and I would not put it past them to be able to cut into the wire plant cages that...
