Growing Lettuce with Hydroponics


uh oh ... another cross posting!

We found a wonderful hydroponics kit. Check out the blog entry at: http://new-view-retreat.blogspot.com/2008/11/hydroponics-growing-lettuce.html

Lettuce is our first choice for such a small hydroponics kit. Maybe after that, we'll try spinach. Weslee loves fresh raw baby spinach, and would eat a couple leaves a day if he could. I guess we could grow herbs in it too, but I don't cook fancy things so fresh veggies really is our preference for this little hydro greenhouse.

Thanks for reading!
