The stock market made me do it!! I lost about 60% of what I had and Maere has lost about 25% so far. We're not hurting (yet) but I pulled almost all my money out of the market 2 months ago and put it in a modest money market fund making all of 2.2% last I checked. We're making some major energy saving improvements to the house, giving a bigger payback than the market and laid some aside to enjoy, a salve for hard licks lately.
We are very, very fortunate. We retired early almost ten years ago and have no bills except for utilities and taxes. I would dearly hate to be making ends meet today with how the economy has gone south worldwide. My respect goes out to you Ginger for having a teenager to support and having the talent to go it on your own and survive. I'm in awe!
I probably should have gotten a taller tent like Ginger is looking at (I thought you were just looking at the 400w, roll of milar, closet setup, not a tent), mine is 48" tall but after using space for ventilation and lights plus some sort of hydro setup on the bottom, I'll have very little more headspace than the Deluxe gives me unless my hydro guy can pull off something low and spectacular.
Besides, I love new toys! :)
I'm not sure my finances can withstand all this keeping-up-with-the-Joneses. (In either sense of Jonesing. )

I'm looking forward to seeing your new hydro gear, your going to be storming off and growing plants I can only dream about - or used to grow until I got shot of my gear.
gisette - we need our grow tents now!
I'm glad you put them here, Peat, they are almost a bible for me. I have them printed but it's nice having acces to them, especially new, revised ones.
YAY! Thank you thank you!
Oh, btw - I added a link to this forum topic to the "Aerogarden Lore | Nutrients" page.
That's fine, I am going to re-write some of it though - add some more information...
