To Carie About Topsy TurvyGive up on the Topsy Turvy. I have never known anyone to actually get a tomato from it. I don't know if it's the seeds or if you noticed, the contraption is very flimsy. If you want to try this method due to space, I suggest purchasing a tomato plant that already has a good root system, or try your own starter (right side up. Use a gallon bucke and drill a ole in the bottom big enough for the base of the stem. You can also drill holes on the sides and put plants there. Hang by handle and fill with dirt. I also like to put small extra holes for drainage. You might find this much sturdier. I have even hung one and put one on the ground below it. As they grow, they merge and you can make some very interesting hybrid tomatoes.
