Science gone wild!
Our experiments moved with us. I actually took them over first in the van the night before we moved in offically. I put them in a similar space so we could keep the integrity of the experiments as much as I possibly could. And just see what happened!
Our tomato plant experiment we started April 24th:
Grew into this by June 1st:
And now into this:
The bottom one isn't producing as many tomatoes, but I think that has more to do with toddlers ripping the top branches off in May than anything to do with not being upsidedown. LOL! I am surpized to say though, that the Topsy Turvy has held it's own this growing season! Pretty darn amazing!
These are tomatoes hanging upside down my Topsy Turvy plant holder:
Isn't it amazing what three months can do? Soon these babies will have red fruit on them, ready to eat!
And our resident sweet potato has grown from this:
It is quite the pretty plant, actually. It has really beautiful leaves. I keep wondering if I keep it hydroponic, will it still start producing potatoes in a couple months? So I think we will keep it for now. :)
