Tomato experiment bounty

Top from the potted plant, bottom from the topsy turvy plant.

So far:
Growing up: 9
Growing down: 9

LOL! Isn't that funny? The ground tomatoes were damaged by my toddler back in May, and that may have something to do with the low yield, but they seem pretty dead even so far. One thing I have noticed is that the ground plant has larger tomatoes... but less of them. And the topsy turvy planter gets really dry real fast.

And these tomatoes are horrible. lol... they are mealy and nearly tasteless and stay really firm. This must be a variety they keep for shipping late in the winter. That is the only reason I can think to breed a variety so untomato tasting.

I have beautiful tall gorgeous tomato plants full of tomatoes, but not one of 'em is RED!! All green! :( I'm trying to set some on my window sill but so far no luck...they do look pretty though, in a green-sh sorta way!

I understand tomato issues! :)
