Horray! My Barrelponics system is in a Greenhouse!


July 29, 2010

Well, I guess I haven't posted anything on here for a while... It's not because we haven't had anything happening, its because we've had so much going on that I haven't had time. The first thing you should probably know is this:

For a long time now my barrelponics system has been struggling along in the basement. I got some lettuce and a few beans from it, but nothing grew very wonderfully with those grow lights. All along my plan has been to get it into a greenhouse.

So, we got this one on ebay.

Getting the whole system out of the basement and into the greenhouse was a challenge, because the beds of gravel are so heavy. The beans had nearly died in the basement and they expired as we were carrying them out.

I replanted the beans and planted a few more tomatoes and kohlrabi.

That was all about a month ago and this is what it looks like now:
