I am super excited about going vertical with my system. How better to take advantage of the limited space in a greenhouse. That’s a statement more than a question. So, the tomatoes, peppers, and more are taking off beyond imagination. I’m finding more interest in the GH lately and less in the traditional garden. In this episode, I explain how I decided to go vertical…strawberries. I had read where june-bearing strawberries could produce at other times depending on when planted after a chill period. The articles mentioned inducing that artificially including in the refrigerator. I don’t know if it’s true, but if you follow along, you can explore the possibility with me. If it doesn’t work, I’ve created a platform to grow much more smaller vegetables on a smaller footprint.

I’ve got more ideas coming to take advantage of space and grow more types of veggies in the more controlled environment a GH offers. I love chatting with folks and answering questions.

    I like the new design. And great info on freezing the strawberries! My brother and I were just talking about how you would over winter your hydroponic strawberries! Thank you!

    Nutrient Gutter Technique ? Think I'd maybe make it stairs, so they have a bit bigger footprint, and point the highest gutter north, lowest south. I'm doing this with F&D buckets with medium because I want to grow some bigger veg in there.
    Subbed & keep them coming :o)
    Cheers !
