Hydro Tip of the Month-  Love those plants!

You will have a much more successful garden if you set aside just 5 minutes per day to check your garden thoroughly. How do they look? Any problems? Look carefully for bugs (especially the undersides of leaves). If you find a critter, squash him dead. This is an excellent way to head off a serious infestation before it takes hold.

We hope you have enjoyed this issue of The Urban Farmer Ezine. Each month, we will bring you another inspiring photo, gardening quote or idea, plus fresh new hydroponics news, techniques & products.
