I wish I could have a garden that completely grows without soil

with 4 comments


Dearest Marty, my wonderful prince and husband,

How are you? My weekend was all work in and around the house but this is normal for spring.  I have a little greenhouse inside, and the plants are coming! It is a joy watching those plants. 

I don’t think that your village used dirt to grow but it was completely green – according to the pictures that I recalled, Marty. This is the gardening I would like to do: gardening without soil. The Egyptians did it thousands of years ago, and it is so much cleaner. And I remember Ron recommending this too.

I love you, Marty. I know that you see the world similar as I do.

Many kisses

Yours forever

  1. Fascinating!

    lmost any terrestrial plant will grow with hydroponics.

    Some of the reasons why hydroponics is being adapted around the world for food production are the following:
    No soil is needed for hydroponics
    The water stays in the system and can be reused – thus, lower water costs
    It is possible to control the nutrition levels in their entirety – thus, lower nutrition costs
    No nutrition pollution is released into the environment because of the controlled system
    Stable and high yields
    Pests and diseases are easier to get rid of than in soil because of the container’s mobility
    It is easier to harvest
    No pesticide damage
    Plants grow healthier
    It is better for consumption.

    • Who says life has to be dirty and muddy?

      In the movie water world with Kevin Costner, the world was flooded. A tomato plant was very expensive. Any kind of dirt was very expensive. Although that movie plays in the future, they never heard of hydroponics. On the other side, there were the bad guys, the “smokers”. It was never shown how they grew their tobacco.

      The movies had a secret map that showed them the way to Mount Kilimanjaro. It’s top still was visible for the world population to start another life there in the dirt instead of doing hydroponics on the water.
