Lettuce ( photo / image / picture from KK Ng's Garden )
Filled up another bed with lettuce. Now that I had some experience of planting seedlings in peebles, it is getting easier!


Mini-Boks ( photo / image / picture from KK Ng's Garden )
The mini-boks transplanted on 28th April are doing great.


Brassica ( photo / image / picture from KK Ng's Garden )
The brassicas will soon be ready for the table. The lone lettuce is hidden right at the back and is doing fine too.

Got a batch of romaine going and is the next batch going in!!

Well, you are an Aquaponics success story. It is great to see each plant rise up from the bed of rocks and realize the story hidden under the pebbles. A lot of hard work has paid off with a project to be proud of, congratulations KK.

A question I almost forgot to ask: do you think the growing time will be shorter from planting to harvest? I was thinking that if the plant received the optimum amount of moisture and nutrients that it would take the least amount of time to harvest. Something for the log book as a reference.

Thanks Sojerd, it is indeed looking good. Now I am just wandering how are they going to taste!

Yes Frank, really soon I hope!

Thanks Jerry, I think logically the growing time should be shortened but I am not sure. I planted the brassica on the ground a week ahead before I planted the remainder here so I guess I cannot make a comparison. Moreover the amount of sunshine here is only half of what the mini-farm is getting.

Anyway, I'll do a comparison when I have the opportunity.
