Outdoor, self-sustaining, solar powered hydroponic gardening system
We will invent an outdoor, self-sustaining, solar powered hydroponic gardening system for growing tomato plants, which will be suspended from a standard six-foot privacy fence or apartment deck railing. The height of the hanging system will minimize the need for the user to bend or lift after its initial assembly. Additionally, the system will include a monitoring device that will automatically add the appropriate chemicals and adjust water flow when necessary, as well as alert the user via text messaging or email when the system is in need of maintenance.
