Hydroponic Tomatoes

Had the chance to check out a local tomato growers greenhouse this past Saturday here in Sutter County. It was pretty neat. The article from the AD by Ashley Gebb can be read here. Also check out Ashley's green life blog here.

Alan Claphan harvests vine-ripened hydroponically grown tomatoes in the greenhouse which he built with his business partner Peter Myburgh last year, just west of Yuba City, on the 5000 block of Franklin Road. The men hope to expand their business by adding another greenhouse and exploring the options of growing cherry tomatoes, peppers and lettuce.
