Many of you saw my previous blog about the Topsy Turvey and you asked to keep you posted on the progress.
Well, it's now been three weeks!! This is the LONGEST that I've ever kept a tomato plant alive!! My thumb is so green right now!!
I still only have the two tomatoes, but look at the size of them compared to three weeks ago in the above link. There is also a small one that has been budding all week, but it's still smaller than a petite pea.
There are several other places where it looks like the beginnings of new tomatoes are starting.
The weird thing is that the plant is not actually growing down as it hangs upside down. Look back up at the picture and see how the leaves are touching the bottom of the holder? The main "branches" are growing upwards. My husband says this is because it's growing towards the sun, but the sun circles around it all day.
Does anyone else have any theories as to why it's growing "up" instead of "down"?
Three weeks and it's alive, so I'm a firm believer... for now.
