Plants I am Growing Hydroponically

Does not include any taxes or shipping fees.

This page provides a list of plants I am growing hydroponically.  I am not sure if they will all work, but I am going to try and see what happens.

The thing about gardening for yourself, there are no rules.  You are free to come up with your own ideas or research and see what other are trying.

I am not sure how well all of these will do in the winter even though the greenhouse will be heated.  I know that for pollination I will need to put a fan in so there is a gentle breeze to break the pollination loose.

Some are open pollinated and some are hybrids.

(8-03-2019)  Well with my surgery and recovery, and business to run, I did not have the energy or time to focus on the hydroponic growing like I should have.  My plants grew quickly and I was not able to keep a record like I wanted to. 

So we will try again in 2020 but we will be setting up our system at our new mini-farm.  We will have four acres of land to work with.

I did try to grow too much and too close together.  We will reset and retry again 2020.

In the picture below I am growing a lot of things hydroponically but the thing that seems to be doing the best right now is the Cherokee lettuce.  It has grown really well and has provided a lot of good eating. 

But now I have let it get too big so I have cut it down and put it in the compost pile.  I need to go through and cut down a lot of things I was growing just to see how they would do.
