Default grow better tasting veggies

can I save money, grow better tasting veggies and not be tied to the weather with hydroponics?

Do you have any rough statistics comparing this method with conventional dirt farming?

Say for a family of 3, is it economical on this small a scale?

I know NOTHING about the details, but the idea is fascinating. I saw it demonstrated in Florida at EPCOT one year.
Thanks for responding!

Yes if you have a climate controlled greenhouse.

From years of experience I would say most plants mature in as much as half the time as with soil.

I built a 100 plant 10' x 10' greenhouse for a high school that would be perfect for a family of three. Got a picture somewhere.

Me too.
