Hydroponic Greenhouse update #5

hydroponic greenhouseWell havent done anything as far as new additions and just been up keeping and pruning as needed. Tomatoes have started to ripen and we have harvested some last few days. Bell peppers continue to grow and still waiting for our first pickings 🙂

Squash continue to produce, harvesting a couple a week. Im looking at removing the current plants soon and putting in some new babies. They are just getting tall and slowing down on production. The powdery mildew is still an issue but keeping on top of it.

On the back wall the one bucket of strawberries had an infestation or white flies (I think) so since they really weren’t producing I removed them. Just not having luck with strawberries. Cucumbers have been producing nicely and we have harvested some already and have a half dozen on the vine still. Producing way more male flowers than male flowers though lately. Beans have been blossoming but so far no baby beans yet.

Finally the leafy green rails. Had an issue with alge so we are harvesting what is there then I will be taking it down and cleaning everything out. Re designing it as the shelf system as mentioned before when I put it back up. Still have some kale and basil as well as romaine to get through. Oh and that speckled heirloom lettuce Ive been trying to get to seed as finally flowering so hope to have seeds before I take down the rails.

One last note as a reminder. Do something to remind yourself to turn a reservoir back on if you shut it off for maintenance 🙂 earlier this week I did a reservoir change out and forgot to plug it back in. I noticed when I made my evening rounds that every thing was droopy. Plugged it back in and everything was happy again by morning.
