Please, I feel so stupid that I'm considering this, but... I am 40 years old and have NEVER grown a garden. My mother never grew a garden, and my MIL (who was an avid gardener) died a month after our wedding, so I've got no one to depend on. So, I know ZIP about growing my own stuff.
This year, I'm considering starting small, and growing my own tomatoes to can. I've been buying organic tomatoes from a local co-op, but there's a certain attraction to growing my own. I'm just intimidated! So, I had this idea that I could simplify things, at least at first and get one of those As Seen on TV things, the Topsy Turvy. Seems shameful, somehow, but it also seems idiot-proof, which is a plus for a novice like myself.
It's less than $15 for one, which I figure is what I'd spend on the containers I'd have to buy to plant on my back patio. I don't even know if they're re-useable, but $15 a year (plus the cost of plants and soil) doesn't seem that crazy. Could be, but I'm not sure what I'm doing, so I don't know the difference!
Has anyone here tried one? If so, what did you think of it?

Motherhood: When changing from pj pants to yoga pants qualifies as 'getting dressed'.
