    You can also cut up a pool noodle. That will hold your plants and easy to clean. It’s a nightmare to clean used clay pebbles.

  2. Yemi Speaks on September 7, 2021 at 10:50 pm

    why don’t you just use D.I.Y ram pump, to pump water and oxygen into it. no electricity or wires and it can pump to any height.

    Hello..it’s interesting.i love doing this too.
    Thanks your inspiring video.

  4. Wendy Kennison on September 7, 2021 at 10:52 pm

    Think growing veggies in totes sounds like a good idea but my concern is
    What about the oil that goes into the plastic to make the totes. ?
    Can one claim its organic because of the oil factor.?
    I’m also wondering if yr plans are mostly in shade. ?

  5. Damon Barber on September 7, 2021 at 10:52 pm

    Pool noodles cut to 2" work well instead of net cups and hydroton. I cut the two inch, then slice the side and roll it up like a cinnamon roll. Master blend is the way to go. Keep up the great hydroponics work.

  6. Lisa Cowell on September 7, 2021 at 10:53 pm

    Great video… Makes want some land, but I’ll work with my small yard! I’m wondering why you can have 5 plants in one small tub but you need 55 gallons for one cucumber or pepper plant?

  7. C"S EverGreen on September 7, 2021 at 10:55 pm

    Thank you for sharing your hydroponics experiment that you have worked on..
    It will really help especially those who are beginners..
    Happy planting. Happy growing.

  10. Fillmore Hillmore on September 7, 2021 at 10:58 pm

    I picked lettuce off the window for 3 months with nothing but well water. No nutrients added at all.

  11. BlueRoman Unicorn on September 7, 2021 at 10:59 pm

    Do you stop your peppers that way they are supposed to bush out and become a bush rather than growing too tall. Thanks

  12. B Green on September 7, 2021 at 11:00 pm

    Aquaponics requires fish to grow plants. Kratky method is how you grow without air or water pumps. Look up dr kratky he has a way to pump butrient water to only 1 inch or 2 inch so you plants have air roots. You can also look up keep on growing. He shows how anyone can grow easily with the dr kratky method

    This is one of the best vids Iโ€™ve watched on this. Thank you!!!!! Makes me want to start right now

  14. Sofia McCann Perez on September 7, 2021 at 11:02 pm

  15. Gay Longo on September 7, 2021 at 11:02 pm

    What fertilizer do you use on your plants in the high tunnel?

  16. JOEREAL HealingIsEasy on September 7, 2021 at 11:03 pm

    great video. Ni one showed how to harvest, when and how to keep the plant producing..
    thanks

  17. Laura Mae Putnam on September 7, 2021 at 11:08 pm

    I am interested in the 55 gallon hydroponics. I will be outdoors. No high tunnel. Will the barrel need protection from the sun

  18. kiki'reaction on September 7, 2021 at 11:10 pm

    My mom is trying to understand how to grow

  19. Kassandra Elliott on September 7, 2021 at 11:10 pm

    Are you changing out the water/fertilizer mix or do you just leave it and let the plants grow in the tubs?

  20. vince hilario on September 7, 2021 at 11:11 pm

    How often you change the water ?

  21. SORANN Farm on September 7, 2021 at 11:11 pm

    wow good idea to make small garden guys

  22. jack. cadman on September 7, 2021 at 11:11 pm

    Would love an update on some of the plants in the kratky systems a year later!

  23. Levee Valenzuela on September 7, 2021 at 11:12 pm

    Thank you so much for the information/inspiration! I will start on Hydroponics and vertical gardening :))

  24. Madam A. Kay on September 7, 2021 at 11:13 pm

    I lovenwhat you are working on
    I do the same too

  25. Nomadis Mileseeker on September 7, 2021 at 11:14 pm

    That tote looks a lot like HDX that they sell at Home Depot.

  26. Chris Parsons on September 7, 2021 at 11:15 pm

    My strawberries are doing wonderful in my stack planter however it gets morning sun and sun until about 5 pm.

  27. Rachel Goodkind on September 7, 2021 at 11:18 pm

    Congrats for growing your own food. Self-sufficient vegetables are a great way t heathier. I believe in soil-grown,’
    but have a lot of reservations about growing in water. I believe that soil is the natural way to grow. By definition, organic
    produce is only grown in soil. However our USDA does not support that definition. It allows many hydroponic growers
    to label what they grow organic, not label it as hydroponic, or reveal what medium the vegetables are grown in. Rock
    wool is typical as a medium, but it is really toxic and reused over and over. In addition, it is legal for growers to use
    substances like fish sludge in their hydroponic systems, if the USDA syas they can, yet NOT LIST THIS FACT ANYWHERE.
    I have noticed hydroponic veggies are taking over the produce section. The tomato, cukes, lettuces, peppers and other
    veggies look too perfect and have very little taste (or nutrition). Real vegetables are grown in soil,and no veggies should
    be labeled as "organic" unless they are grown in real soil. Adding liquid nutrients to water is not soil. Thats’ my opinion. Peace.

    Great video..clear and direct . I appreciate it.

  29. Laura Mae Putnam on September 7, 2021 at 11:22 pm

    Thanks for complete descriptions of how to set up what you are growing. Which growing zone are you

  30. John Hall on September 7, 2021 at 11:22 pm

    How often do you change your water?

  31. Valerie Sanchez on September 7, 2021 at 11:22 pm

    In hydroponics, growers are working with warm water. Compared to cooler water, warm water doesnโ€™t hold as much oxygen, and root and bacterial respiration occurs at a higher rate. Plant pathologists have found that pathogens such as Pythium are more likely to start affecting roots when oxygen levels are low.

  32. Michael Vanecek on September 7, 2021 at 11:25 pm

    I recommend you paint the white lid of the 5-gallon bucket or cover the lid with foil to prevent algae.

  33. RAFAN on September 7, 2021 at 11:28 pm

    Hi…im so much interested to see your garden…..i live in New York….I want to live outside the city and change my profession ….i like farming

  34. Kevin Boettler on September 7, 2021 at 11:29 pm

    Hey Daniel how ofter do you add nutrients to you cucumbers in your hydroponics

  38. Frugal Living on September 7, 2021 at 11:31 pm

    Try placing plastic tub sandwiched between straw bales or wrap in burlap, so sun doesnโ€™t degrade as fast the plastic but it helps keep water from getting too heated.

    Arenโ€™t you worried about the plastic chemicals leaking into the water and then into the leaves. We are told here even getting the right PVC is important. Not China PVC etc…. I smell the big boxes and they stink of chemicals.

  41. Levee Valenzuela on September 7, 2021 at 11:32 pm

    Checked again for the fertilizer. I noticed you have very healthy plants. Thanks again.

  42. Willy Cortez1 on September 7, 2021 at 11:33 pm

    temperature so cold there?

    How long will the plant last ?

  47. sharon bender on September 7, 2021 at 11:38 pm

    Loved this video as I am literally beginning some hydroponic greens today, as soon as my Amazon delivery arrives! I always have trouble germinating cukes in soil outdoors so your method using buckets is very interesting. Just wonder why you limit each 55 gallon barrel to one cucumber? Just seems like it could easily sustain 3 bush cuke plants, am I wrong? Thanks!

  48. Carol Mauriello on September 7, 2021 at 11:38 pm

    How often do you add water?

  49. A. N. K. Zaman on September 7, 2021 at 11:39 pm

    How often do you change the hydroponic solution/clean the barrel, thanks,

  50. lating champion on September 7, 2021 at 11:41 pm

    Do you change the water at anytime?
