37 Edible Plants To Grow in Hanging Baskets

I remember many years ago now, I had a large 100lb Boxer dog names Zeus. He had always loved vegies of any kind. I thought I had the bright idea to put a planter right at my back bock with some small Cherry Tomatoes. That way I could grad them easily for salad, snack or dinner.

At least I thought it was a good idea at the time. The Tomatoes plant grew incredibly. So healthy and big… I was excited. Then I would see a whole lot of batch of green Cherry Tomatoes coming in…. Then nothing…. Days later more batches of green tomatoes. Never a red one anywhere. I was confused, annoyed and I did not understand. 

Then one afternoon I went to check on them yet again. I knew there was quite a few that were almost red. That is when I caught my dog in the act. I was shocked….


He was picking ONLY the ripe ones and being all so gentle with the plant. Picking one Tomatoes off at a time. Not damaging or picking any other Tomatoes. 

I ended up leaving that plant for him to have, after all he never damaged the plant in any way, and I just picking mine out of the garden itself. From that year on I always had one or two planters for Zeus.  Tomatoes and kale were his favorites.
