Topsy Turvy Update Time

These are my 2 heirloom tomatoes. They just keep getting bigger and bigger. The yellow pear (right) has tons of little tomatoes on it but none of them have ripened yet. The Mr Stripey (left) is supposed to be a late bloomer, I think I might have saw the start of a flower this evening when I was sitting outside.

Here's the little bell pepper plant. I just picked 2 peppers off of it tonight and will be able to pick 3 more next week. I'm hoping that it just keeps producing. So far I've picked 4 peppers off of it and have 3 more on deck so it seems to be a good producer.
And here's the Topsy Turvy. The big piece hanging out to the side was growing straight up but I think it's had enough of fighting gravity. As of tonight there are several blooms for the cherry tomatoes and it seems to be growing pretty well. I'm still not 100% sold yet at least not until I get some tomatoes out of it. In case you haven't been following along every Sunday I've taken a picture of the 2 cherry tomato plants in my topsy turvy from the same spot to let you all see how this thing is progressing. The great news is it doesn't seem to need anymore water than the rest of my containers. If you don't have containers already you'll need to water alot more than if they were in the ground.

So how's your garden doing? I just received a Malabar Spinach plant last weekend from a seminar at the Flower and Garden Show at Disney so I'll be planting that tomorrow. I guess it's a very viney plant but hopefully it'll do good in the pot I have.

I have 2 of the Topsy Turvys. I planted a tomato plant in 1 and a cucumber in the other. Isn't it funny the way the plants grow up? I think once the veggies are there they will become heavy and gravity will kick in! I will have to post some pictures of mine.

I am so curious about the topsy-turvy things. Can't wait to see how they progress.

I'm so glad that everyone is enjoying the topsy turvy updates. I figured that I was questioning so much that I would share my experiences and it's just great to hear that you all are enjoying it and that it might be helpful for you.
