Upside Down Tomato Update II

There it is! What all the work is for: the fruit!

There's 5 or 6 small fruit. I'm beginning to see, however, that the plant is in poor condition compared to its brethren planted in the ground:

The hanging plant has smaller foliage, some of it yellowing. The upside down tomato was a 4" plant while the in-ground were six-pack sized--quite a bit smaller--yet the UD is less than half the size of the ones planted in the ground, and the fruits are much smaller as well.

In considering the results so far, I've decided to end the experiment early. I'll explain why in my next tomato update.
