This is my bean trellis success. It uses a single gutter reservoir topped by two gutters attached together to serve as the soil container which is really only composted rice hulls. Every 8 inches or so, I looped a rayon wick (mop head strand) from the bottom reservoir up through the hulls on one side, then over to the other side and down back into the reservoir. The wicks do just that. They wick water/nutrient fertilizer up to the beans. As the beans mature, they send roots into the reservoir for direct consumption, and grow up the trellis where they produce for easy pickin’.

I have a hydroponic greenhouse. I grow in a system I call FAWN which is a modified hydroponic drip system. The media I grow in is aged rice hulls with parboiled rice hulls mixed. This has proven to be a great mix for me. I use Masterblend fertilizer as my nutrients to every plant grown. I’ve been pretty successful with my setup growing hydroponic tomatoes, peppers, broccoli, squash, cucumbers, cabbage, cauliflower, lettuce, turnip greens, corn, potatoes, kale, carrots, beets, spinach, onions, leeks, and even okra! Everything a gardener would desire. I also dabble in other areas like growing in raised beds, growing in a ground garden, grafting, pond activities, growing fruits, and other projects on the homestead.
