For years I have worried that Ron didn't have a hobby. Now he does. It is hydroponics. He had been researching a while and decided he would like to do this. He grows vegetables in some weird stuff. He constructed this contraption to hold the 2 liter bottles cut down and fitted to a water system and he replenishes the water from the fish pond. Then the water runs off the plants and back into the fish pond. Supposedly this is good for both fish and plants. It's a green thing.

We are starting to see some buds and even tiny tomatoes and peppers. Don't know how much it will help our food budget. It certainly is not cost effective, at least not yet. But Ron is having a lot of fun and feeling pretty accomplished. Good return for the buck.

  1. That's very cool! It may not be cost effective, but neither is scrapbooking. It's a hobby and that's a good thing!
