Clean up before commercial xmas time

Posted by Pete Vicars on October 2, 2014 at 19:02 0 Comments

Big clean up and move around going on here.  Because we have chookies we can't have sty foam boxes out the back so most of my wicking pots are 20 ltr pails.  I have found a 14 litre plant pot that fits right in the top just nicely.   This gives me about 6 ltr of wicking water in the bottom.

Some fruit fly around so am trialing some new home made baits + commercial ones.

 Having some cortizone in my right elbow tomorrow (fri).  I can't lift anything, darned annoying, ahh the joys of…

Thanks Chris, for recommending it. I have purchased a large bag of the stuff, and I thought I could probably share this. So if anyone is interested to try this on their garden, I have filled 1kg bags which I am happy to on-sell. Please message me if you would like some and I will bring some along to…

Aquaponics - wicking beds/pots - bits and pieces

Posted by Pete Vicars on September 19, 2014 at 20:16 4 Comments

How did I start?  I delved into hydroponics some years ago.  Never really liked the idea of growing with chemicals so that didn't last long.  The original ideas came from the internet and me being a stickybeak and liking growing some food I suppose it was a natural for me to get interested.

 So I started with one 220ltr blue barrel I had found plans for on the net.   You will get the idea off this link …
