Mike's Urban Farm: Adding Some Hydro Beds

This is my urban farm as it stands. It is usually in flux but right now I have:
- 4 grape tomato plants
- 4 hot pepper plants
- lots of cuttings and transplants
- 1 large basil

My lighting consists of:
- 125W 2700K CFL with reflector wing
- 4-bulb shop light, 128W T8, cool and warm white

For plant food I am using a water soluble fertilizer 24-8-16 and a tomato specific 12-8-16 (Those might be off).
