Grow-Tech, a manufacturer of hydroponic and aquaponic growing media, visits Olivia’s Garden at Pineland Farms in New Gloucester, Maine to interview owner Scott Howard.
We asked Scott some of the questions we thought would be relevant to someone exploring the possibility of starting a commercial hydroponic or aquaponic farm. Here is a rundown of the interview:
1. Scott first gives an introduction on Olivia’s Garden. Olivia’s Garden is an 18,000 square foot commercial hydroponic farm located at Pineland Farms in New Gloucester, Maine. Olivia’s garden grows hydroponic lettuce, basil, tomatoes and microgreens and focuses on integrated pest management.
2. Secondly, Scott discusses how Olivia’s Garden was started. Scott got his start in hydroponic farming in 1997 when he started growing tomatoes at Olivia’s Garden.
3. Thirdly Scott says the biggest challenge in starting a hydroponic farm was adapting to the Maine environment. Also figuring out how to fix a problem in advance instead of reacting to it when it was a bigger problem.
4. Scott’s advice to anyone starting a commercial or aquaponic / hydroponic farm is to start small and make sure you have your distribution markets for produce established. Otherwise you may end up with a lot of hydroponic produce and no where to sell it.
5. Scott says the biggest technical hurdle in starting a hydroponic farm was learning how to control the plants hydroponically while also deterring bad bugs and diseases.
6. Lastly Scott discusses the types of growing media used at Olivia’s Garden. The farm uses a nutrient film technology system, which utilizes Grow-Tech FlexiPlug®, for growing hydroponic lettuce and basil. A dutch bucket is used with coconut to grow tomatoes.

The Lane Fleming collection of early pistols and revolvers was one of the best in the country. When Fleming was found dead on the floor of his locked gunroom, a Confederate-made Colt-type percussion .36 revolver in his hand, the coroner’s verdict was “death by accident.” But Gladys Fleming had her doubts. Enough at any rate to engage Colonel Jefferson Davis Rand—better known just as Jeff—private detective and a pistol-collector himself, to catalogue, appraise, and negotiate the sale of her late husband’s collection. There were a number of people who had wanted the collection. The question was: had anyone wanted it badly enough to kill Fleming? And if so, how had he done it? Here is a mystery, told against the fascinating background of old guns and gun-collecting, which is rapid-fire without being hysterical, exciting without losing its contact with reason, and which introduces a personable and intelligent new private detective. It is a story that will keep your nerves on a hair trigger even if you don’t know the difference between a cased pair of Paterson .34′s and a Texas .40 with a ramming-lever.
