Time to Start Thinking About the Garden?

With all the snow and cold weather, I really haven't thought about gardening. Seriously, you can hardly even tell I have gardens out there - except for the old tomato cages that I didn't remove in the Fall. Mostly, when it comes to gardening, I plant some seeds, hope they come up, pull weeds occasionally, and hope I get some good vegetables. I really don't know anything about hydroponics, but it sounds interesting. It's a whole system of gardening that is supposed to save work, provide higher yields, and eliminate the need for pesticides. I know I hate when the bugs eat my beans, but I really do not want to use any kinds of pesticides on them. I also don't particularly like pulling weeds, so if I can avoid that, I'm interested. Cory used to like helping me with the gardening, but then he got older and lost interest. I guess he didn't like pulling weeds, either.

HID Hut is a source of discount gardening supplies. They have everything you'd need to get started with hydroponics, and the best prices online. The list of hydroponic gardening tips and articles looks really helpful, too.

  1. Never to early to start thinking about planting for the spring.

  2. I miss having a garden...

    Rockin' With Frigga is up! :-)

  3. We had thought of trying hydroponics for tomatoes this year in our solarium. Maybe green peppers too. I have had very poor results gardening here. It has not been warm enough even in the summer.


I love your comments! Keep them coming.
