I have a dozen or so 4 liter empty plastic water bottles.  I would like to begin dabbling with hydroponics by using them.  I would like to plant tomatoes, strawberries and maybe cucumbers (4 of each).  I think they have similar requirements in terms of nutrients in the water, ph, etc. Can someone recommend a particular system to set up using them?  I would like it to be a central system rather than attending to each pot individually so that I have the experience of maintaining a water pump, air pump, etc.  Any ideas?

4 liters seems a little on the small size for tomatoes, but google "dutch bucket system"

If you haven't already, check out the series on garden bucket hydroponics by Cody's Lab on YouTube.
