Of all the tomato plants in my current custody, the hanging basket tomato is doing the least well.
It has been growing steadily, but much more slowly than its backyard counterparts. It also has a lot less sun and dirt and water and, well, all that other stuff the experts recommend for plants.
But it’s hanging in there.
Over the weekend, it reached the roof of the porch, and began a slow descent over the edge of the pot. And by slow, I do mean that it is starting to grow sideways. I suppose that will work until the first three tomatoes form, at which point, it should drop over. I’m just hoping the roots hold and don’t decide to give way.
Perhaps I should mulch the dirt with rocks to give it a little ballast?
