Hydroponics Try Out

Growing veg has been something I’ve done on a relatively small and infrequent scale for a  several years, the results have been mixed, and not something that I’d call a great success.

Some years we’d get a great crop of tomatoes or beans or something, but it was hit or miss. This was mainly due to time commitments for work (I traveled extensively) and babies/very young children.

In order to kick things off in the food growing  dept. I’m going to start a very small hydroponic grow area in my house, growing only lettuce.

This morning I bought the fertilizer and a few bits and pieces needed. Together with some old plastic food containers I’ll plant my first crop this weekend. Photos and updates will follow soon.
