    DH wants to try hydroponics again this year. We've tried before on a small scale and it was a limited success (probably would have worked out better if a tree hadn't fallen on it, lol). He's built a huge wooden box about 3' wide and 8' long, it's about knee high; he plans on lining it, adding a pump and using a big piece of Styrofoam to float the grow cups in. We'll see how this works out (and keep it out of tree reach [​IMG]).

    I've thought about using our greenhouse for that.

    Our big greenhouse is being converted to duck quarters. Inside they'll have a quack shack for being locked up and the greenhouse frame will be covered with wire; it will have their food/waterers and pool. They'll be spending a lot of time outside of the greenhouse quarters but it will give them a 'duck central' during bad weather or if the automatic door lets them out before we get up.

    That leaves the little greenhouse to be arm wrestled over by DH and I. It was my potting/seedling place until he "temporarily" moved some tools in there. I'm thinking since the boy has 2 sheds to store tools in, I should get my little greenhouse back. Probably very unreasonable of me [​IMG]

    Are you saying I always get my way?

    You've been talking to DH, haven't you!

    haven't been talking to him, but I think it's a universal thing.



    besides, if you don't get your way, at least 95% of the time, it's your fault......lol
