Went yesterday to Pink Hill NC to get the rest of the barrels I needed to complete the system. I pick up 2 of the blue barrels 55 gal,with the bung holes that will be cut in half to make the Grow beds.
I also picked up 4 black pickle barrels, 60 gal ea. Two of these will be in the system and 2 for rain barrels.
I got the pickle barrels all cleaned out and ready to go . The blue ones I did a little bit on them I will get them thoroughly after I have cut them in half.
These are the 2 that will be the rain barrels.
Here are the two pickle barrels in place .
My original system had a catastrophic failure Sunday. THe left bank of grow beds had been slipping slowly toward the pond. So I needed to do something anyway , well one of the totes broke at the bottom and I was lucky I didn’t loose all the water. So I took the left bank out and the flood tank out. I piped the water directly to the right bank of grow beds. So they are now running continuously.
The rest of these are some plants I have brought into the green house because the nights are getting cooler.
OK thats it for today ,will start the plumbing tomorrow. Hopefully I will be able to get it up and running soon. Might be running on a extenion cord for a little bit , I will eventually get it wired …I know Eric I will call before I start tat LOL..
