Well, as you may have read in a previous post, the items I’m choosing to grow in my Waterfarm right now are the tiny tim tomato, toy choi, early hybrid spinach, and 3 varieties of everbearing strawberry. Here are some pictures of them all:

This one is rather big, but a good example nonetheless.

This is a good example of a small one. This is what I hope to achieve in my Waterfarm.

If anybody has an feedback on my choice of varieties or would like to recommend a different variety, feel free to post a comment.

It’ll be the tomato near the back in the middle, bok choi and spinach in front of it, and strawberries in 3 corners.

P.S. Some garden pics.

The flytrap is in full bloom now!

    So great to see a garden in its beginning stages. I’m not gardening this year because I’m expecting. Thanks for the pics and the gardener’s high.
