Hydroponics 




Hi all.  I started a small hydroponic project about 8 months ago and have since added some more pots to total 8 stands and 28 pots.  I am very pleased with the production even though this Florida heat is pushing it to it's limit.  While picking some veggies this morning I found a friend to help keep some of the bugs away chilling out on one of the peppers. thought I would share.....







just picked a lot of the veggies and trimmed back most of the units. still have lots of veggies growing and new
seedlings coming up.

thanks, honeybee.  I am really happy with it.  it exceeded my expectations and I still have my regular garden for all my other crops that can't go into these pots.

Wow, that looks great.  Never saw one like it.  See you have those green friends also.  Had one jump on my leg the other day......my cat used to love seeing them stick to the storm door......

I have loads of frogs and geckos.  I love them and they help keep the bug population down (which is nearly impossible).  the one thing we have here are loads of bugs. biggrin
sorry, I didn't reply sooner - haven't been on much.
