Now I have done more reading on this hydroponic vegetable garden than I did on having a baby when I was pregnant, and I feel like the only way to make sure I understand what I have read is to just build it and see what happens. Up to this point I think I understand the building process.
Just need a tote such as this.....
cut some holes in the top of it for a little plant baskets, fill the basket with clay stones,
and plant with no soil on the roots
get a fish tank air pump and a sand stone.....fill the tote with water to the bottom of the basket and voila you have a garden. The pump keeps oxygen in the water...now you just have to add some sort of nutrient supplement to the tank.
Now according to all of the reading this should give a larger than usual yeild to a crop. So, we will be seeing as soon as our overnight temps are steady enough to get this going I will try to take a stab at it.
If anyone knows anything about this PLEASE let me know what you know. Maybe sharing info can help us all.
OH and I am going to the farm store next week to see about the chicks...YAY ME!!!!
