She was telling me all about it and I became fascinated with it. After checking out a bunch of different systems, I decided to make a NFT system and a few Dutch buckets. They seem pretty straight forward and easy to make. We just "planted" in the NFT on Saturday and then the buckets yesterday.
The lettuce is growing like crazy so far and both the strawberries and peppers are doing really well, also. Probably the best part of growing with the hydroponics is it uses very little water and no soil. Here are a couple pics of what we have so far. I'm definitely going to be building more in the near future. Next time we will grow our own seedlings instead of buying the plants all ready to go.

I built a 4'x12' planter box for my wife but no luck growing anything yet.
Butchered a few rabbits 3 weeks ago though. They were delicious as always!
