View Full Version : Hydroponics for a family of 4

Hi Folks:
I'm interested in starting a hydroponic garden and would like some advice on planning.

There seems to be alot of information on building hydroponics systems, but I don't see any information posted on the size of the systems needed to create a year round supply of produce for a family of four. I know there is no magic answer to this, but I would like some guidance as a starting point. Something like: 1 tomato plant per person, 1 cucumber for every 2 persons etc. etc.

Any advice on this matter would be appreciated as well as suggestions on plant selections that you've found to offer a good balance of variety and yet still be manageable.
