has anyone ever been able to grow pears in bottles? I'm going to try it this year, but if anyone has actually done it I`d appreciate any tips. thanks

god does not subtract from our alloted life-span time spent gardening, or fishing.

My mom has done it before, you have to put the bottle over the pear whens its small (obviously) and tie the bottle to the branch so it does not drop off (well supported). I think my mom made grappa with hers, but gave it aways to someone as a gift, everyone could not figure out how she did it.

I know of a place you can get forms to have
veggies (like a yellow squash) grow into.. and it forms like a piece of corn with a smilin' face..
or something like that..

I just can not find where I found it before..
But I have been hunting for it in my spare time..
*it bugs me when I read or see something, then I can't remember where I found it...*
