Hydroponic / Aquaponic  - 
 
Jon Jeavons revolutionized high yield outdoor gardening many years ago. Today, we use high yield garden planting methods under hydroponic conditions with lights to ensure edge to edge growth and conversion of all light and electricity into plant growth.
Here is a successful trial of germinating trays of leaf lettuce using scatter planting on rockwool. Also, I share a technique for whole tray planting of arugula seeds in a cheap, efficient and fast manner. http://www.otrhomegrown.com/high-yield-lettuce-hydroponic-systems +Daniel Burke +Joshua Jones +OTR HomeGrown

Thanks +Linda Dean  Hope you don't mind me sharing your research here.  Awesome work.
 
It took longer than the lettuce, but there appears to be at least one carrot with a root! I will need to study up on how carrot seeds deal with light. It may have affected the germination.

Carrots in rockwool? How do they shape up?

Legislation that inhibits seed sharing is wrong.
 
Thanks to +Seed Savers Exchange for this share!
Recently, state governments in Pennsylvania and Maryland have intervened to prevent the free distribution of home-saved vegetable seeds through public seed libraries in their states, citing legislation meant to regulate the commercial sale of seeds. At Seed Savers Exchange, we feel that these actions are misguided and overzealous.

What is the worse that could happen in a seed swap?  At worse someone creates a genetic mutation in a seed that will get into our food supply, pollinate with the rest of our seed and render all of our non-hybrid seeds useless; then that "Person" will claim that they own all of the seed now that "theirs" pollinated with the community's seed.  OH Wait, Monsanto did that already and has our government in their pocket.  
How does this type of legislation protect or serve the people?  This law and laws like this are a threat to our community and food security.  
I am trying to think about this reasonably but I can not see a moral or social reason for this type of law.  It looks like the Judges who worked for Monsanto are doing their job for them while in office. (Shame).

Consider a donation that funds finding a cure for ALS.  http://giveto.osu.edu/ALS/ Thanks. Please Share Life.
 
Before ALS took my mothers life, she started a fund to give directly to the OSU Wexner-Medical-Center doctors trying to find a cure. All OSU FANS doing this challenge should think about donating to this fund and at least posting this link in their status!

Must read for anyone using rain barrels.
 
An ignored project comes to a head.
Sometimes that just happens, something you weren't planning on doing or fixing suddenly will not be ignored any longer, needs doing and fixing. Take for instance our rain barrel.  Dumb thing. Yay, #motivationmonday.  Frown. Y...

   The article shared here demos a really cool and vital piece of equipment called the "Rain Reserve". This device can be attached to your downspout allowing for the excess water to run back into your downspout.  An important, simple, and relatively cheap solution as overflowing rain barrels can damage the foundation of a house.    
Very cool Chandra,
how is your garden going?

Have you all seen this?  I'm skeptical to the gel contents inside of diapers but the substance and potential is intriguing.  What do you think?  Anyone using this stuff?

Hi everyone!  I am compiling a list of the best, most trusted, accurate, and up to date information sources on commercial hydroponics online; what sources are the best?  I'll publish this list for all to use.  Thanks in advance.  Mark.

Joanne and I, although we may act like it sometime, are no longer children. We expect to bring our baby girl into the world very soon, we're playing for keeps now. We needed to establish our will, power of attorney, and consider what would happen to our child if anything happens to us. We met Pat in her comfortable office in OTR, she explained how we could address our concerns and enlightened us to concerns we didn't even know about. I'm grateful and trust that Pat has solidified our child's future if anything happens to me or Joanne. I highly recommend Pat Feghali to anyone starting a family or a business in Cincinnati.
