Kratky community hydro update

The little Kratky hydro setup that was sponsored by Poetic Justice Gawler is rocking along.

There have been a couple of teething issues, mainly from those brief hot days we had. They made the water in the tubs get pretty warm and the plants wilted a lot.

I’ve cut some construction Styrofoam and placed it along the exposed parts of the tubs to help reduce that problem.

A reclaimed computer fan and a solar panel that was repurposed from a defunct fountain pump has also been installed to circulate the air a bit when the Sun’s heat is an the area.

So far, we’ve harvested and shared Baby Cos lettuces, Basil and Celery and I’m about to plant some Pak Choy this arvo.
