Do a search for hydroponics on here and you'll find several good instructables. If you would have tagged your post with hydroponics and other related tags you would have a good listing of what your looking for along the right hand side of the page here.

What vegetables ? Tomatoes, chilli, peppers etc do well. Hydroponic potatoes can be done, but its a lot of faffing about.

Type 2.
With careful attention and drugs, going down 350-290 which is still high
but no longer sight threatening.
I will see a good endocrinologist early tomorrow :-)

It was an old ScottishNorthern English word meaning to mess around and not do the main task, or a job which has a lot of steps.
cf.
"I.....it would have been a lot of faffing about to use their instructions, so I did it my way"

or....

"The instructable had 150 steps ! What a lot of faffing around just to change a lightbulb"


Originally it meant a brief puff of wind, that would have pushed smoke down a chimney. Its been in common use where we live for a couple of hundred years or so. Its been commonly used in the UK for probably 50 years.

Once I saw a Scottish dictionary. And all this time I thought that Scots speak the Queen's English! :-)

Heck, even we get subtitles....

Lots of similarities between Scottish and Northern English, and we're closer to Scandinavian languages
