Today we went to Kirbyville TX and deconstructed 90 x 30 greenhouse. A special thanks to Trent And Kade Sherwin, Doug Tibbits, Jori Higgins, Greg Caldwell and my wife and children for helping me today. It was hot and humid and fire ants were everywhere!

Today we received our nutrient solution for our hydroponics system. We planted tomatoes, cabbage, lettuce, cucumbers, multiplying onions, and squash. The whole system is running great!
I also took a picture of one of our feeder pigs. She is growing fast and strong!

Today we have been constructing our vertical strawberry towers which will grow 65 plants per tower. They are made out of NEW 4 inch sewer pipe that is cut in 5 ft lengths. We the mark and till all our holes offset from each other 2.5 inches horizontal and 2 inches vertically.
We also started our Dutch bucket hydroponics system. We got 26 2.5 and 3 gallon icing buckets from some local bakeries and donut shops. We plumbed them and now all we have to do is fill with perlite and plants then hook up out sump system.

Thanks to the help of Doug Tibbits, Paul Praschnik, and Trent Sherwin, we have finished our new 10 x 12 hydroponics greenhouse. Almost all of the supplies were donated or recycled! I'm looking forward to growing food year round in it!
