Indoor Garden and DIY

DIY Hydroponics System

I’ve bought five more plastic containers about $6. I created more hydroponic systems for spinach. First, create a six 1-inch holes by a drill. Prepared small spinach and kept them in one container. This works like a simple Kratky hydroponics method.

Now, added a PC fan as a wind and invited some characters to my hydro garden 🙂 This is enjoyable.

Backyard

Oregon Sprint Tomato

I hope it gets hotter now because tomato loves hot temperature and sunlight to grow faster.
