Hydroponic Adventures

My husband and I are going to grow tomatoes, peppers, and jalapeños this summer. We grew these same vegetables last summer. However, last summer we grew them in soil in containers on our deck. The jalapeños did fabulously. We pickled them all and have been happily eating our own hot peppers all winter. However, the bell pepper and the tomatoes did not fair so well. We aren’t 100% sure why. We planted them a little late, we probably didn’t feed them enough, and they may have gotten too dry. This year we are setting up to grow them on our deck but in a hydroponic system.
