Floating lettuce and other goodies!

We are trying various ways to grow plants in our greenhouse. We saw this idea from the University of Florida - floating lettuce. Underneath the styrofoam is a water nutrient reservoir. These have been in there a week and doubled in size.

We also replanted our tubes with broccoli, cauliflower and Brussels sprouts. We lined them in black to help with the algie. We have a nutrient reservoir that circulates several times a day.

Here's a close up of the plants. We make our own pots!

Here are some early tomato plants that I started January 8th. I plan on putting these in big pots in the greenhouse soon.

I am trying to produce some carrots, radishes, baby greens and beets in pots. They are looking good right now!

We also have several broccoli plants that we potted. They are so healthy looking and green!
