I am going to try some hydroponics So far I have the setup ready for the plants and I am starting the seeds. It is too hot and dry here to grow much so I have an old in ground swimming pool 24 feet by 30 feet. I have put a tubular frame over the top for shade cloth and started to put in 4in plastic pipe with holes for mesh pots. This system is completed now. Also later going to use a couple of other technics. There is a lot of good ideas on yuotube on how to set it up. With some luck I should be having fresh vegetables year round.
