Weekend Update: Topsy Turvy Tomato Planter...Week 6

Here we are in Week 6 of the Topsy Turvy Tomato Planter experiment.  And if you caught last week's post , this little tike had taken a turn for the worst.  However, (drumroll.........) there is still hope! We now have a whole new set of little flower bulbs providing a glimmer of light at the end of the tunnel.  I will not be proud this time or talk about my "abundant crop on its way" until I have taken a big juicy bite out of my first harvest (novel thought, I know). 
So on to the changes I have observed... The back part of the plant that really doesn't see sunlight, has shriveled up completely.  The front leaves seem to be growing towards the sun and just yesterday, the leaves fell.  I am hoping that the weight of all those baby tomatoes is what caused this. I will have to say the ups and downs of this experiment are downright exhausting, but I will continue!  So stay tuned! Oh, and just when you thought the ambiance couldn't get any worse, it did.  
Our new neighbors have decided to leave their garages open so the new background of this experiment will be the inside of lovely sheds.  
Hope for a future...
