hydroponic herb garden!

science

Do you remember these? Taking a much needed break from the back breaking labor of the front porch and trying not pass out in the heat, I moved indoors. Unfortunately most of my tools are in the garage with the swarms of insects, and stiffling heat.   I found this scrap piece of wood laying around, and I drilled three 1 1/4 holes equally apart with my awesome Makita that my mom bought for Christmas.

I opted for the 1 1/4 paddle bit because I figured once I cut it down the middle, my table saw would take off another 1/8 of an inch making the holes the correct size to hold the glass. Should I plug tool brands? (Dewalt)

here it is split down the middle. I then dug around and found some rubber stuff to pad the glass from the wood and connected the two pieces of wood back together with brackets.

I attached  some extremely large swivel hooks and chain, and hung it up. The middle one with the cork is a little leaky so I will probably have to find a better solution.
The basil is already growing roots because I have had them in water already for a while.  Keeping my fingers crossed for the mint and oregano. We shall see.
