Hydroponics to the people

18 Jul 2016|Hydroponics, nanny|

When we see how urban farming is being developed and becoming part of our cities, one question that comes up is: who is going to own and operate the production systems? Big corporations or individuals and local companies? Which one do you prefer? I personally wouldn’t like big companies to be the sole owners of [...]

My indoor tomatoes. Learnings

24 Jun 2016|Hydroponics, nanny|

These weeks I have been sharing my experiences growing indoor tomatoes. While the purpose of this experiment was to learn about Nanny, I got more than what I expected. I am reserving the experience of using a Nanny for next week; today I will write about other things I learned. The one mistake I will [...]

Growing my indoors tomatoes. Harvest!

15 Jun 2016|Hydroponics, nanny|

The previous post on these series I did a great leap forward. The truth is that mid-culture, things do not develop as quickly as at the beginning, or maybe it felt slower to me. Anyway, we left it a 17th of april with the first pollinated flower starting to develop; time for another fast forward. [...]

The greenhouse technique for infinite tomatoes

7 Jun 2016|Hydroponics, nanny|

There is a clever technique for farming tomatoes which I first saw used in the commercial greenhouses in Almería. I call it the infinite tomato technique and love it because it’s beautifully simple and very effective. The greenhouses are tall. In fact the taller the better for some uses. The factor limiting the total height [...]

A Nanny in Paris

31 May 2016|nanny|

Here I am demoing Nanny to whoever was interested. The demo was simple: I added a bit of potassium hydroxide (pH up) to the nutrient solution of a small hydroponics system [...]

I do not mind slow, in fact I reckon sometimes we need more slowness in our lives… mmmmh, summer… sorry; calm is [...]

Growing my indoor tomatoes. Alarm!

17 May 2016|nanny|

7th of March In the previous posts of the series, I wrote about planting the seeds and transplanting to the hydroponic system. With everything checked and working, I felt pretty confident: what could go wrong? Well, the substrate did: the expanded clay was not acidic enough. As the nutritive solution passes through my cheap [...]
