By now we've all seen upside down tomato planters. Although the idea is a good one, the size of the container often holds back plants from potentially growth. Try this doubled up bucket idea and make it your own with a coat of paint — because who said buckets had to be bland. See how right this way:

Over at the DIY blog Instructables, user slachem has been busy with boat loads of buckets. Well two of them anyway.

The idea is simple: give your roots more room to grow and allow the plant to support itself as it blows in the breeze. This is accomplished by cutting holes of different sizes in the bottom of two buckets and bolting them together. This set up yields a serious amount of tomatoes and can even be done on a balcony with a few modifications!
