I usually plant things I can freeze or can, peas, beans, tomatoes, carrots, brocolli, cauliflower, in bulk, then I do smaller amounts of lettuce, and cukes. I also do herbs. This year I'm looking into making a hydro garden that I can bring inside over the winter.

A hydro garden is a garden grown without dirt. The plants are grown in a water fertilizer solution. I'm attempting to build a system that consists of 4" pvc pipe with holes drilled in the top. A plant pot goes into the hole, it's filled with expanded clay (think marbles that look like they are made of terracotta.) and the plant. The water/fertilizer mixture is put in a reservoir and pumped to the plants. It goes through the pot, and drains into the pvc and is returned to the reservoir.  I want to set itup outside during the summer, and bring it inside for the winter. I'm running out of garden space, and this can be set up in the corner of the driveway.
