Upside-down Tomatoes (Part 3)

A few more weeks have gone by and the results of growing upside down tomatoes have been mixed. One of the pants has put on fruit and like I originally guessed, started growing down with the weight of the fruit. Another has ignored the pull of gravity and grown up, around the side of the basket and continues to grow up towards the sun. This is not altogether unexpected either, it is a plant after all. The third plant is somewhere in between with larger fruit it cannot grow up too much but that has not stopped it from trying. I'll keep monitoring their progress though, they still have a lot of growing to do and with more weight from both the plants and their fruit I expect the plants will start trending downwards. We will see. For now check out my latest pictures to see what I'm talking about.

I will have the sun!Cherry tomatoes growing upside-down!
