So, we’re continuing to plant the Winter Greenhouse and with a 8′ x 12′ space, you gotta get creative. Essentially, I’m going to attempt to employ many techniques I’ve worked on over the years including tomato wrapping (my own creation), stress pruning, growing vertically, tight spacing, drip/self-watering hydroponic FAWN platforms, and more. The focus is on growing summer veggies in the winter with emphasis on production. Here we go! 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!

    InterestingJust started my first hydroponics tomatoes, peppers and sweet basil. Have 4 bubble buckets, just started yesterday. So far so good. Also have 7 other plants that I'm going to start in a simple drain to waste system using smart or cloth buckets. Started bubble bucket nutrients at 720 ppm and ph of 5.6. I have question for you, my well water is 7.0 ph, took quit a bit of PH Down to get it down. Any advice? I'm going to search the internet and see what I find, I assume it's the water's hardness? Thanks

    Hi Brent,
    Is there ever a bad time to remove a (tomato) sucker? Just thinking if I ever want to clone a plant, that would be the way to do it. Cheers,
    Bill

    I think you're right about stressing the tomatoes and it causing them to want to propagate more. Black cherry is on my list again this year. One of my favorites!

    Very good space saving technique for the greenhouse.  Might try that sometimes:-)

  • Midwest Gardener 5 months ago

    Tomatoes and Peppers already. OK, now you're intentionally trying to make me feel bad about having to wait for another 2 or 3 months 🙂

  • Jim Battaglia 5 months ago
