We all like fresh vegetables.

But you can’t just put seeds in the ground and get food.  Soil is a complicated matter.  Different plants require different drainage and different pH levels.

So how do you grow vegetables, year-round, without the proper soil?

Hydroponics.

By growing vegetables indoors, with artifical light and in a liquid culture, you can give your family a year-round, reliable, source of fresh food.

Dr. of the University of Nebraska has this extremely educational video that gives you both the basics, and some really in-depth how-to, on how to build hydroponic systems.

 

It’s a great starting point to building your own larger-scale home farm.
