Pumpkin Growing on Roof

By Bea McManis

Caught this on the fly this morning.  The pumpkin vine goes up the porch column, and the pumpkin is growing on the porch roof.  It is supported by a board so it won't tumble off.

Kind of cool, don't you think?

Bea, what a find. I love the pic. What a cool idea. My Morning Glorys have taken over my porch. I never thought of Pumpkins. Maybe next year. Hey did anyone buy one of the upside down tomato plants this year, in the green bag?? If so, how did they do?

do not waste money on buying the bag! just take a look at it and im sure anyone can figure out how to make their own.
i have seen them priced for $19.99 anyone can make their own for free with stuff they have around the house.

My mom decided she wanted one. So, I planted an cherry tomato plant in it. None of the tomatoes did real well this year, but it did grow and did have tomatoes. Of course any plant will grow up towards the sun. also needs to be watered frequently.
