I love this cleaner look. It has the same grow bed only on higher legs. The fish tank is now an actual 55 gallon fish tank and not a black 55 gallon drum. It will be easier to see how the fish are doing .
The fish have been living in a tank just like this indoors over the cold winter months and we thought it would be easier to move them to their summer quarters if the tank was the same. The inside of the greenhouse feels bigger; giving us more room to move.
We have changed the inside of the bed also. Last year we had lava rock to hold the plants in place but this year we have foam, net pots and clay. We did put a very thin layer of lava rock underneath giving the bacteria a place to grow.
The funny thing is the lettuce in the right picture are from the grocery store. We places the romaine, celery and spring green cores in the established grow bed from the winter and they continued to grow. I have moved them out to see how they do. This bed will be home to different bean plants once the seeds sprout.
Hopefully in a couple of weeks, I can show you some real progress; so stay tuned.
