Now you learn what AP is all about.... washing rocks. Scoria is a pain.

How much does it cost in Adelaide? $100 for a cubic meter here in Canberra.

Scoria $137 /tonne from my local supplier, works out to about $100 /m3 I think.
Bit on the expensive side!
I'm jumping the gun anyway, haven't even fixed the holes in my grow beds yet.

Looking good...

Found some time to spend on my future AP setup.
Spent the weekend preparing a site for my grow beds.

Less lawn, more grow beds, must be a good thing :!:

Looks like a great start Scott. You'll be up and running before you know it, then the real fun starts.

I realised I was an addict, the moment I ordered Joels book and was rushing home every night after work to check the letter box.
Oh yeah , and after spending many very late nights reading the forum.

HSM = Holy Shit Moment

Oh yeah, thats right, I remember now. In fact just had one.

Beer + filling aquarium with hose + reading forum = HSM (overflow)

I'm sure there is many more to come, but that's half the fun....
