Judy and all,
Thanks to everyone for the interesting dialogue on indoor gardening.
For the past few years, I've been working and testing a new design for a
basic indoor garden for home and school use.
About 50 of these units are in use in Vermont with good results.
Now seems a good time to do a beta release of the design and plans, first to
the ACGA list serv.
A photograph and detailed plans are available on our web site at the link
I'd appreciate any feedback from ACGA list serv members on the design.
The most important component is the light fixture and tubes, as this is the
critical element for seed starting. It's possible to get by on the cheap
with lights, but the investment in quality fixtures and light tubes is well
worth a few extra dollars.
Happy New Year!
