  1. I have my indoor hydroponic gardens and the bird feeders to keep me busy during the winter. The bright LED lights for the hydroponic gardens are good for the soul when it is dark outside. The deer fence project is on hold until it gets warmer (and the ground isn’t too muddy). Soon, I will need to think about what seedlings I will want to have ready when it is time to plant the Garden Towers.
