I think it's safe to say now that the topsy turvy experiment is officially a success! We've got three squash so far on the two tromboncino plants, and more flowers in bloom. Although we did lose one cucumber plant early on (it broke off- oops!), the remaining plant is also in bloom, so we should end up with at least a few cucumbers out of the deal too!
And obviously, the fuschias we planted up top are gorgeous. The hummingbirds aren't nearly as interested in them as I would like, but we do occasionally catch a glimpse of one feeding up there.
So definitely no regrets about taking the risk on the non-topsy-turvy vegetable garden. We created a unique and attractive feature on the deck, and we're going to get veggies too. Brilliant!
