Ok, it started just to see if the hybrid system would support growth in the net cups between the tomatoes. Not only did it, but I managed to produce Buttercrunch Lettuce and Pak Choi to full maturity in temps well above 100° F in the greenhouse for weeks! The little I’ve done with growing lettuce in my past gardens almost always led to bolting and/or bitterness well before maturity. I mean, it was my fault as I was primarily a spring/summer gardener. Now, I’ve eaten many salads and harvested the first of the Pak Choi. I’m impressed by my new greenhouse and how things are coming along. I love chatting with folks and answering questions.

Share your gardening thoughts and pictures! https://www.facebook.com/c3voyage/ . A little about my setup. 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. Thank you so much for stopping in! Video Rating: / 5 This is my greenhouse grow of dragon’s tongue beans and […]

    Any idea what the water temps were? I'm assuming high due to weeks of high temperature but this growth is great!

    Nice Brent! Mine were done in March. I tried to keep 'em going in the Kratky beds in May but they faded out before they really got started!

    Hello Brent. Good result Brent. Just out of interest what's your compost that looks like rice. I have not seen anyone else using it and do you recycle it. I have watched you dump bucket after bucket of potatoes in your barrow and often wondered what you do with all that compost when the camera is switched off? HGV

    Nice looking beans, Brent! I have had really good success with growing beans hydroponically. I grew them in a Kratky bed a couple of years ago!

    You're having WAY too much fun! Don't strain yourself lol!
    Looks like you could almost 1/2 double production, or do you think it would be too crowded to have 6 plants per bucket?
