Farmer in the City




Florida Outdoor Hydroponics

Location:  Orlando, FL

Day Job:  Web Developer/ Programmer

The Digs:  Backyard, Other, Rooftop

Crops:  Basil, Bell Peppers, Cucumbers, Green beans, Lettuce, Mint, Spinach, Tomatoes

Animals:  Cats

Why I'm Getting Dirty:  Trying to create a better, self-sufficient life for my family. In Florida, many areas don't have soil, we have sand. So I will be experimenting mostly with Hydroponics & Aquaponics. I will be composting to create better soil for future soil gardening. Visit my blog @ http://hydroponicoutdoorgreenhouse.blogspot.com

    Congrats on making Farmer of the Day!

    My pic is of my first attempt at my homemade hydroponic garden. Was doing well, but then I had to move out of town for a job and had to get rid of it. Take Care!
