The project


I rebuilt my hydroponic garden using a VegTrug Growing Kit due to it breaking from wind damage previously.


This is the old setup, just to show what results I achieved and just with natural sun. Snow peas, lettuce, various herbs and even strawberries.




Luckily enough, my whole existing pipe layout fitted, so I could just re-use most of it without too much alteration. The VegTrug raised garden is super sturdy and perfect as it comes with its own greenhouse cover. 




I also added a light I found from an old indoor kitchen grow garden for the days that are not so sunny and to extend the daylight hours over winter to help with growth. All parts except for the light came from Bunnings.

Thats a nice setup, Rebuilding something is always an interesting idea. Do you "fix" things that you would like to work better or do you replicate what was and make it stronger (as in the frame)
