I'm pretty sure I would do the same thing in that heat. But I'm not a heat tolerant variety.

I'll stay up Nort' and freeze my balls off 5 months out of the year instead.

Weekly Update

Everything survived another week except one spinach plant. An insect,(I'm betting a caterpillar), chewed off the main stem right at the level of the Hydroton. Everything also actually grew like crazy in spite of the heat.

I have just been draping the 40% shade cloth from the back of the unit to a couple of ropes just enough to keep it off the plants. Going to come up with a more permanent solution this coming week because it seems to be working, even for the lettuce:





In fact the lettuce did so well the misses chopped it back right after the pics above and we have enough for a salad tonight:



Will be interesting to see how much it grows out this coming week since it is cut completely back to the level of the Hydroton.

Peace,
starke

Looking delicious there, great to see the shade cloth did the trick.

Im working on making a small aquaponic salad bed in the garden, placed in the middle of a raides soil bed. Hope it will work as well as your psychedlic art work!

You should plant some Bok Choy in there. Easy to grow and its delicious.

Never even crossed my mind. Thanks for the excellent idea.

Looks yummy starke, well done so far.
I'd bet you could rock some root crops like radish, Kohlrabi and turnips in that colorful contraption of yours.
Plants are really liking what you are doing with the shade cloth. Dialing it in!

If you like kale, I have found the tuscan kale variety slow to bolt

been almost a week for the lettuce
anything worth picking again?
rock on
