Topsy Turvey Sales. So Close - Yet So Far Away. Tomato.



Whoa! Look at the Topsy Turvy upside down growing bag on my sidebar. Growing tomatoes upside down? Huh?

And it works too. Have you seen the commercial? One blogger told me she bought one this weekend at Kmart and another blogger told me she MIGHT be buying one from me. I couldn't make this stuff up. So close yet so far away.

Do you know what it means for you though? You could be one of the first people to buy the Topsy Turvy from That Blue Yak. And if you do, I get something like 30 cents. And if you're on the line about making the purchase I want you to know that when I spend that 30 cents I'll be thinking about really sick children. In YOUR honor!

So what are you guys growing in your veggie gardens this year?

And here's my veggie garden tip of the day: "To keep deer away, I like to make a mixture of soap and Tabasco and spray it on the leaves. I also grow some mint and clip it and string it around my garden fence. If you have a wolf or a bear, try chaining it to your garden fence. That should work too".

Everything I grow in my garden is for medical purposes only.

To keep deer away I run out in the garden every 30 seconds wearing a jester's hat and playing a miniature trumpet.

Greta - did I tell you I might have Glacoma?

Mo - that image had me laughing out loud.

Minka said...

Wolf? Where am I supposed to find a wolf? Do you think a bear would do?

Oh, I forgot, I have no garden.

Mo, chasing deer away without your electric toothbrush?

We have a fence around the property, and another one around the garden; nothing gets in (except the occasional frisbee).

Dr Zibbs said...

Diane - I'm not kidding - I still can't get to your blog. When I go there, it shuts down.

Does anyone else have this problem?

The Topsy Turvy also looks like a great way to punish children!

As I only do one good deed per day (max), I voted for you at blogger's choice. Maybe tomorrow I'll buy something from you, I've been eying that face/butt soap for awhile now.

Sass said...

Now that i'm looking over there, though...I think it sure could be fun to stick my finger up a chipmunk's ass.

Wait.

Did I just say...?

I sure did.

And I don't mean it.

It's the codeine speaking.

I'm out.

Fuck.

I was wondering how it was you resisted on commenting about the Prince of Belair post. I'm sorry you can't access my page, I honestly don't know why it's not working for you, but I'm no genius.
I read your page every day. mwahhh! xo

A garden does not technically have to have veggies growing from it.....right????

Cause I'm growing me some weed.

Does that actually work?

Kimmie said...

I was gonna vote, but I have to create an account. Seriously?

dmb5_libra said...

my garden? ahahahaha.

i'd prefer to leave a giant ecological footprint and buy my tomatoes from the grocery store....out of season.

Vic said...

If I got a bear, would it eat the horn worms too? I hate those things.

Girl Interrupted said...

I had that problem with Diane's blog when I was using my work's computer ... you just need to try 2 or 3 times in a row and it let's you view eventually.

As for your garden tip? I chained my bear and wolf to my Topsy Turvy upside down thingy and they broke free, savaged each other AND the deer, ravaged my garden, destroyed all my garden gnomes and then crapped on all the vegetables.

I'm SO not impressed right now.

Upside down tomatoes?

That shit is just cray, man!

buffalodick said...

My wife asks if that could really work..The woman who grows $50 an ounce basil in her "Air Garden"... it's on 20 hrs a day, we harvest basil once a month..

Son of a Thomas said...

I refuse to grow tomatoes upsidedown. Flavor gets all trapped in the bottom and I got to eat my burgers the wrong way.

I still can't get to Diane's blog either.

Jeannie said...

No veggie garden for me I'm guessing - I'd have to do a number on the new sod - maybe next year when it's dead anyway.

Scope said...

Upon seeing that ad, my dad said, "Why not just use an upside down plastic milk jug?"

I tried to explain to him that then Zibbs wouldn't get his cut, but all that high finance was lost on him.

Dr Zibbs said...

Son of Thomas - as usual - DOTS A GOOD VON.

And I'm ready to take you up on that cheesesteak offer.

diane said...

Jeez, I feel so popular with all of these "can't access" comments. I wish I could fix the problem, so I could then reap the benefits of your concern and loyalty. You guys are the best! (tear, sniff)

Topsy Turvy is a must for mixing Upside Down Bloody Marys.
