The Hydroponic Greenhouse

In my last post I told you of the new direction we are taking here, with the addition of a hydroponic greenhouse.  The greenhouse which will extend our growing season to just about the whole year, is complete and we have a few crops growing!

This particular greenhouse is designed for tomatoes, but I have started some squash and cucumbers along with some bell peppers along with around 720 tomatoes of the Geronimo variety. I also planted several cherry tomatoes and a few heirloom varieties.

The greenhouse is also going to be handy to get a jump start on the seedlings for the outside garden.  The inside temperature stays above 65 degrees in the winter and should stay below 80 in the summer…I guess we will see about that.

So it looks like we are in the hydroponic greenhouse business! If the production keeps up with our projected numbers , it looks like we are going to have a mess of tomatoes in another 4 weeks or so!!

If you need some tomatoes , let us know!
