Tea-candle Lantern - Here's a neat idea from one of the folks who posts regularly on a hammock camping forum I belong to:¬  a tea light candle lantern made from a soda can and water bottle.¬

I used one of these last year for a cherry tomato plant and it worked very well.¬  It was sort of like picking fruit off of a vine.¬  Plus, they could save a lot of bending over¬  ¬ :afro: an important thing to note as we age ;)

A cherry tomato plant is exactly what I was thinking of trying.  Do you think one could get three plants in a standard size bucket?

You could maybe squeeze two plants in, but I think three might be crowded.  It couldn't hurt to try though, it would certainly be a space saver :afro:  I enjoyed the convenience of mine last summer a lot, I don't think you will be disappointed however many you get in the pot.  I am thinking of getting one of the Solar Sizzlers you wrote about.  It seems like it would be a useful item to have on hand.  Thanks for the info Magispook!
