The End of the Great Experiment

Tuesday, July 20, 2010

The experiment has come to an end. I know you have all been waiting to find out the results of my little test of the Topsy Turvy vs the regular potted plant. Unfortunately, my testing environment was invaded by a hideous monstrous plague. I found this out one afternoon when I went out see my plants and found this.

A fat green caterpillar ate all the leaves off of my plants! I was depressed for a couple of hours thinking of all the tomatoes that could have been. In the end, we only got 6 tomatoes. 4 from the Topsy 2 from the pot. So you know what this means. The topsy turvey produces twice as much as a potted tomato plant! I'm going to be submitting this work to a few academic journals and see if I can get published. I will let you know how it goes.

Does that count include the ones we picked while you were gone? I don't remember which plant they came from, but Brandon might.
