Growing Greens with Hydroponics

Thanks to @cropqueen808 (@deniset73), I miraculously grew my own lettuce and bok choy!!!

For months I've been watching Denise post photos and videos of her amazing crops grown hydroponically, and she made it look so easy.

She even convinced me that it was easy, and gave me a starter to kit to try it for myself.

The kit consists of a dish bin, a Styrofoam cover, fertilizer, seedlings, and net pots.
I simply filled up the bin with water, sprinkled in some fertilizer, placed the Styrofoam cover on top (which Denise already cut holes in), placed a net pot in each hole, then the seedlings, and that's it!

Over the span of a few weeks, the seedlings did their thing and grew into beautiful produce! I was so proud of myself for not killing the plants!

You really don't need to do much other than make sure the water level stays high and watch out for any bugs.  

I have since grown more lettuce and kale, and I'm eager to try my hand (or new green thumb, rather) at more veggies!  Wish me luck!
