Living in Canada and being an avid gardener is tough when the real growing season is only 4-5 months long. While this rushed season does produce a great deal of vegatables that can be stored for year around use, it would be nice to have at least a few fresh greens in the winter time. With this in mind, I decided to dip my toes into hydroponics. Not a big operation, and no, not for “medicinal herbs”, but for a steady supply of lettuce, spinach, bok choy and similar greens.
This page outlines my experience with this, including a bunch of learnings along the way.
