Journal October 21, 2012

Much like the guy telling the story about the one that got away; many people don't really believe the rate of growth that can be achieved with hydroponics.

The above photo is for comparison with the photo of the cucumbers on the October 10, 2012 post.  The photo illustrates only ten days growth, not to mention that several small cucumbers are also forming.

Quite honestly, with the controlled conditions in the tent and the duration and quality of the light that they are receiving, the plants are doing much better than they would do in the greenhouse in the spring.  

I almost expect to open the tent some morning and be attacked by a giant vine.

That reminded me of "Little Shop of Horrors."

The vine will shout "Feed me Seymour!!"
