Somehow I ended up with far too many projects running. That, coupled with poor design and planning, resulting in an outrageous number of trips to the hardware store over four weeks.

Thanks fintuckyfarms! I did indeed get the idea from Bigelow. I wish I could hang mine like they have, but I didn't want to build a hanger system.

I'm not sure yet how much the roots will expand, but yeah, I expect I'll have to trim them at some point. The plants are placed directly in each pocket with Hydroton, no basket needed. It should be...

Quite a setup - nice job! I haven't done much research into exactly how much space would be required to support a family of 2/4/6. This is definitely something I'd like to find out, though. How many...

Lettuce, second season

Last year's lettuce setup was a complete success as far as I'm concerned. I had 26 plants between two 10 foot drain pipes and a 20-something gallon reservoir, and enjoyed a continuous supply of...

It ended up that only one plant was affected by going limp. It was the last plant near the overflow in the more mature tube, and has since been removed. Roots looked the same as all the others,...

Plants are looking great! I haven't figured out yet if I need to insulate my tubes or reservoir, since we haven't had enough sun yet. I like your solution though.

Thanks, fintuckyfarms! I'm having a lot of fun! Yours are really looking great, too!

It's getting a bit warmer in the NW, but the sun is still hiding out. Some days it seems the plants grow substantially, others it's like there's no change.

The oldest plants have been in for about...
