Seedling Prep

Kyle and Lauren picked up the seedlings yesterday, and planted them in rock wool plugs. We'll be planting these into the Codman System in due time! The light looks purple because we're using special LED grow light specifically tailored to growing plants - chlorophyll is most receptive to light energy in the blue and red wavelengths.

Seedlings ready!

Took trip to GYO Stuff in Cambridge today to check in on the WApU_Codman's seedlings - Here's a shot of the basil and lettuce - ready to be transplanted into the system. The seedlings are growing in a rock wool plug that we will place into the larger 3" 'gro-blocks' and burry those into hydroton pots! There are a few steps to cure the blocks - so I've attached a diagram found on the products website.

Tilapia Arrive at Codman Academy!

18 of these little fellas arrived at Codman Academy this past Thursday - all are healthy and feasting on high protein organic fry pellets. If we play are cards right, we might be lucky to be feasting on THEM in 9 months!
