Re-building

The blue bins we set up for the water containers began to flex and stretch in every direction. Their walls are too thin. We had to deassemble the entire containment system for rafts and substitute our blue bin with a solid black mud bucket type bin, made out of sturdier material. They work.  Lot’s of drilling, gluing and in just half-day, the job was done. 
Next, we installed lights, put the potted rafts in the water and voile, the transplanting can start!

Our plants have been paitiently wating for our progress, but now they are getting quite pale. Good news for them! The water is getting that beautiful tea-color and is full of nutrients. Our planties must be starving by now, growing on air and water alone.

Only one day after transplanting, the WildFire Lettuce mix begin to change color to nice red shades and greens got fuller and greener. Beauful; I love to having this garden in our home. Just wait till Nasturcuim begins to flower!
