This whole Hydroponic gardening thing has definitely been a learning process for us.
|Our Pole Beans are starting to come in|
Between figuring out the right nutrients to finding which organic spray keeps the bugs at bay, hydroponic gardening is extremely different from regular ole dirt gardening… but in a fun and yummy way.
|Our Bush Beans came out this really cool purple color|
In my past postings about our Hydroponics garden (what used to be my Potager), I have shared our slow learning process with this system. What started as a trial project, has become a full blown garden!
|This is just one part of the large system. Here we have Tomatoes, Pole Beans, Bush Beans, Peppers, & Eggplant|
After having dealt with insects that were impossible to get rid of in our old raised bed garden soil, having to not have to work with dirt is really nice.
|I’m starting to pick Kale and the Broccoli is starting to come to maturity|
Right now I have a pile of green beans ready to be cooked for dinner, Kale chips in the dehydrator and some really yummy looking grape tomatoes that are just about to turn red on the vine. Now, if I can just get the zucchini’s to all grow at the same time, I’ll be set for all kinds of delicious zucchini recipes.

I will have to come back and write another post soon about how exactly we have put this together.
(If you want, you can visit the Potager section of my blog and see past blog posts)There’s been A LOT of YouTube watching and Googling going on, yet it’s really starting to pay off.

I am REALLY looking forward to having my own strawberry patch soon!
