Phase 2 is in operation!
Phase 2 is in action and we now have plants in our media beds! The media beds are filled with expanded clay pellets and utilize a flood and drain system. Phase 1 (rafts) and Phase 2 (media beds) are all interconnected. Nutrient rich water flows throughout the entire system.
The media beds contain the larger plants: kale, cucumbers and tomatoes. The cucumbers and tomatoes will have a suspension system in place soon to support the vines. The rafts contain different varieties of lettuce and basil.
I am already overjoyed watching the lettuce grow, but I am so excited to see how these new plants perform!
