I'm growing a tomato plant in a topsy turvy hanger. Some of the tomatoes are getting little brown spots--like a bruise. Any idea what it is and what I can do about it?

It's probably sunscald, especially if the spots are on the exposed part of the tomato. Usually leaves will shield the tomatoes but when the plants are growing upside down, they can be more exposed to the sunshine. They should still be good to eat - just cut out the damaged part. Enjoy your harvest!
