YET ANOTHER ADVANTAGE OF THE TOPSY-TURVY TOMATO SYSTEM

There's less risk of finding a dead cat.

(Thanks to Jeff Meyerson and of course catmanmax)

Paly said Monday he had taken care of the neighboring garden for 19 years, 16 years of which Lutz did not live next door. He said that because he tended the plot, he thought he had a right to bury Patches there.

Sure, makes sense to me. And since I've used the urinal at Yankee Stadium I'm entitled to take it home.


Honey, I love these tomatoes! What did you use for fertilizer?

Hey, we got a litter of tomatoes!

♫ You say "tomay-to", I say "meow" ♪

does anyone have a Topsy Turvy Tomato growing thingy? My husband and I have debated for months about whether they're any good.... so I'm turning to the most knowledgable group of people on the internets to find out.

Puss 'N Shoots

Is there an echo in here??

Hairloom tomatoes. Ugh.

Is there an echo in here??

I've noticed this happening on every post this morning. It almost has to be a spambot, but I've never seen one that picks out little phrases of someone else's comments before. I certainly hope nobody's clicking the link under that "name."

Maybe the neighbour was Monty Python's Mrs. Premise:

Mrs. Conclusion : Hullo, Mrs. Premise.
Mrs. Premise : Hullo, Mrs. Conclusion.

Conclusion: Busy Day?

Premise: Busy? I just spent four hours burying the cat.

Conclusion: *Four hours* to bury a cat?

Premise: Yes - it wouldn't keep still.

Conclusion: Oh - it wasn't dead, then?

Premise: No, no - but it's not at all well, so as we were going to be on the safe side.

Conclusion: Quite right - you don't want to come back from Sorrento to a dead cat. It'd be so anticlimactic. Yes, kill it now, that's what I say. We're going to have to have our budgie put down.

Premise: Really - is it very old?

Conclusion: No, we just don't like it. We're going to take it to the vet tomorrow.

Premise: Tell me, how do they put budgies down, then?

Conclusion: Well, it's funny you should ask that, because I've just been reading a great big book about how to put your budgie down, and apparently you can either hit them with the book, or you can shoot them just there, just above the beak.

Premise: Just there? Well, well, well. 'Course, Mrs Essence flushed hers down the loo.

Conclusion: No, you shouldn't do that - no, that's dangerous. They *breed* in the *sewers*!

Kev, I don't think it's a spambot. I think it's somebody who's either trying to get some attention or is trying to annoy the heck out of everybody. Doing a great job on the annoying part!

I doubt this cat even knew what a fjord is...

Patches? OK, somebody has been watching Buffy, "Dead Man's Party."

Oz (looking at the zombie cat): "Well, I like it. I think you should call it Patches."

Not interested in planting THERE again, at least this year..... Next year, might be planting custom squirrels!

Key quote:

"A woman planting tomatoes in Pennsylvania's Lehigh Valley said she was shocked when the was turning over the soil in her garden to plant tomatoes and found cat paws sticking out."

So, he buried the cat upside down?

beckster -

Yeah we have one (courtesy of relatives who buy EVERYTHING that's been seen on TV.) And I have a tomato plant in it which is desperately trying to grow the other way. It looks like a J. Is it any good? Well, the plant's not dead and has flowers. That's all I can say at this point.
