I finally got the outdoor section planted. Things seem to be growing well so far. I also have Okra planted outside but it's not out of the ground yet. Here's some pics

Wow, very impressive, you are going to have to open an herb and vegetable stand.

That is one heck of a set up there!

Piney, Morning.

Your system is beautiful.

I use drip emitters at 2gph pressure compensated. They are different than yours. Whose products do you use ? Are they pres/comp ? Do your misters use plain or nutrient water for foliage feeding ? The plant growth rate is astonishing, impressive. You most certainly have gardening to a science.

I finally started putting plants out in the garden 2 days ago. I am jealous.biggrin.gif The garlic harvest will start in about 3 weeks.

Keep the pics coming. The veggies are beautiful.

Dave the system just uses the emitter tubing with no ends and I adjust the flow with shutoff valves. The nutrients go into the 6" distribution pots at the top then flow down via gravity. The trick is to adjust the time the system runs so that it flows all the way to the ground pots but doesn't run out of them thus wasting expensive nutrients. Outside I have some small emitter sprinklers and some just emitter sticks that just hold the tubing in place and again I adjust the valves to control flow. The mister heads are using plain well water and are strictly for cooling in the pics you'll notice I ran a black 1/2" poly pipe for the misters and attached it to the white 1/2" poly pipe that supplies the nutrient solution. When it starts to get cool I'll run another set of misting lines on the bottom and use them for heating

How are you keeping your solution cool? I run a system in my basement in the winter but haven't tried it outside, in the summer, due to heat issues in the reservoir.

My tanks are wrapped with this and it helps but also remember my system uses injectors and mixes it with water coming from the well so the well water cools the nutrient solution

post #17 of 17

Oh, I missed the part about the injectors.  That certainly would make a big difference.  I mix mine in big batches (20-50 gallons at a time) and siphon from there.
