My topsy has produced exactly two tomatoes. Might not be getting enough sun. I have few good options for where to hang it.

Are they trying to turn upwards to reach for the sun?

I know mine did. I really believe they use all their energy trying to reach for the sun that they don't have enough for making toms. I only got a few from my topsy turvy about 4 years ago and never tried them again.

Yes it looks that way. Here's a pic of my spindly topsy tom plant. Its my version of the Charlie Brown Christmas tree... LOL



The other tom that I did pick was good. Just need a whole lot more.
