Windowfarming

Windowfarming

Hey folks! I think I've only ever posted here once before, so mostly just a lurker (with the occasional reply) I didn't find hydroponics under the tags. I recently heard of the Windowfarming project and I wish to join the bandwagon. I mostly plan on doing it for herbs, so that I may keep them indoors for easy reach and use all year round, no matter the temperature. Although it seems easy enough to build, I never want to do anything half informed so I was wanting to buy a book on hydroponics. I was looking at three different books: How-To Hydroponics, Fourth Edition by Keith Roberto Home Garden Hydroponics by Larry Duren Gardening Indoors With Soil & Hydroponics by George F. Van Patten but even with amazon reviews, I'm not sure which, if any, of these three would be for me. Not to trouble too many of you, but do any of you dabble in hydroponics? any tips? recommendations for any books?
