Codman System Update!

The tilapia seem quite happy - the largest is now over 4" and they have started taking our largest feed.

Lisa harvested much of the lettuce for students' salads and plans to use this basil for a pesto tomorrow!

Do you see the two cucumbers forming at the base of the flowers?!

Todays test shows that pH, Ammonia, and Nitrite are all in the right place. The Nitrate is low because the fish weren't fed over the weekend.

Things are looking very productive and harvest is already upon us 1.5 months in!

GYOStuff Garden Learning Center

Our friends at GYO have created a number of resources for those of us growing plants from seed, using hydroponics, or other means. Check out their resources and classes here: http://www.gyostuff.com/Learning_Center.html

Particularly useful to us has been the visual inspection nutrient deficiency chart, included in this post or via this link: http://www.gyostuff.com/Nutrient_Deficiencies.html#How_to_treat_nutrient_deficiencies
