Ever since I was young I wanted to be a scientist. I wanted to have a lab and do my own experiments . I started experimenting with hydroponics earlier this year and quickly became addicted or obsessed as my wife would say . It started in my office closet and quickly grew too large ( and WAY too hot ) for that area. I decided to try to move the “experiment ” to my shed. The only problem with this is that I had just converted the shed to a wood shop. Long story short I have fully converted the wood shop to a large grow room for hydroponics. My hobbies tend to change quickly as I become bored. I can honestly say this hobby will never become boring. I have had some success but mostly failure at this point. I have been posting to Facebook about my experiment so much I decided to create a website so I could just share what is happening from a central location . The purpose of this site is to document my results ( good , bad or ugly ) and collaborate with others to produce as much as possible within the confines of a normal back yard shed. I have researched a lot of techniques on the web and I will provide the links on the site also. Most of what I have learned is hard to apply exactly to my layout. I have taken my research and tweaked it to fit my needs. I hope to share what I have learned , but more importantly learn from others.
