Kimberly Hess has been an inventor her whole life. She’s also been a gardener, a florist and a seamstress.
Now she’s found a pursuit that allows her to practice all those skills at once.
Hess has invented The Tomato Bag, a hanging, cone-shaped container made of recycled tarp remnants.
“It keeps remnants out of the landfill, it allows me to be creative and it could help to keep the employees here busy,” says the rural Halstad, Minn., woman, who works as an independent industrial seamstress at TRS Industries in Fargo.
Hess is also working on prototypes for a smaller herb bag, a compartmentalized petunia bag and a bag that would showcase dried-flower arrangements – another self-taught specialty of hers. Hess also envisions a deluxe tomato bag, which would come complete with its own water container.
