These are the photos of the 1999 Hydroponic Garden up to August. San Antonio experienced cooler than normal temperatures (highs only in the low 90s!) right up until the end of July maiking it ideal growing weather. This garden was built using twine trellis wires held up by 2 by 2 wooden frames. I grew tomatoes, bell peppers, jalapenos, cucumbers, and pole beans in this garden.
|The photo above shows beans on the left and tomatoes in the middle.||The photo above show the pepper plants on the left, tomatoes in the middel
and beans on the right. The purple totelocker in the far bottm left of the photo is
buried in the ground and serves as the nutirnt tank. The beige trash can contains
water that is fed to the nutient tank through a float valve.

|As you can see, the beans got way out of control. The tallest plant
reached 12 feet high. I had to use a ladder to pick them.
The photo below shows the incredible mass of roots that developed during the planting season.
