Chris's Garden

Chris G's 1.jpg (18275 bytes) Here's a picture of my garden. It's 4" PVC sewer pipe (2 10' lengths) with 2" holes drilled on 12" centers. They're each fed by two spaghetti tubes connected to a 1/2" poly header, which runs down into a 20 gallon Rubbermaid sweater box/reservoir. Inside the reservoir there's a 265 GPH Maxi-Jet 900 power head, an aquarium airstone, and as of tonight (in the upper 20's) a 100W aquarium heater to keep the solution at 64F.
Chris G's 2.jpg (37421 bytes) Only the last half of the system is planted, because I expanded it too long after the 6 tomato plants had gotten going. There's a lonely English Pea plant crawling around now, but it's just tomatoes, and at last count there are over a hundred in varying sizes. A handful have ripened, and they were stupendous
This picture was taken about two and half months after the system was built and the transplants placed.
