Processes and Projects Part II: Hydroponics vs. Aquaponics

Hydroponic grown lettuce

This post is another general post about processes and projects.  It is specifically about me making the choice this year to go with hydroponic growing of some vegetables.  Originally I hoped to do aquaponics, but there are just too many difficulties to overcome in a short time and I wanted to grow food.   So in my normal philosophy of  taking “baby steps” I went with hydroponics.  This post is based around a video I created that will be embedded below.  However, there is much more that I would like to link. Those links will appear below the video.

The video associated with this post.

In the video I recommend a book about aquaponics.  The book is very good, especially for those of us learning the ins and outs. An Amazon link to the book is below.

In hydroponics there is a youtube channel by a man with the title:  mhpgardener.  The link to his whole channel was attached in the notes with the video.   All of his videos are great and just about everyone taught me something.  However, 3 links that were especially helpful to me in construction my hydroponics set up are:

Dutch Bucket Hydroponics – How It Works & How to Make Your Own Buckets

“Building New Boxes for Hydroponic Growing”>Building New Boxes for Hydroponic Growing”
“Hydroponic Fertilizer : What I Use & How to Mix It”

Because of different materials my installation is a little different, but very little.
