IndoorSalad Lettuce Splashers Test

This topic started mixed-in with a Kale grow comparing kale grown in Aerogarden, manual hydroponic "splasher", and soil. But, in the Indoor Salad book, one of my DIY projects is a splasher. So I started out just wanting to test the instructions for the DIY project, since it's been a while. Then I wanted to try out my new 1-part vegetative organic nutrients vs. one-part vegetative inorganic nutrients.


Growing Kale in Aerogarden, Manual Hydroponics, and Soil

Vegetable production outside in summer provides more than we need, so, good time for experimenting indoors. On the Windowfarms site, they sell a "cool microclimate mix" of starter plants - including "baby dinosaur kale".

Coleus & Snapdragons & Lettuce

Around August 20th, I planted coleus and snapdragons in a Park Starts block, set between my minis. These plugs are similar to the AG3/6 bound-peat sponges, and work as replacement sponges. At that time (and maybe still not in stock at this time), there was no such thing as a Master Gardener kit for the mini. Anyway, these are slow-growing ornamentals, so wanted to keep my old flower garden until the replacement plants grew a bit.

The lettuce gardens really have nothing to do with the coleus & snapdragons, except proximity. I've grown a lot of lettuce gardens, though.
