We got home last night, too dark to check on things, but FIL told me it was all good.
We went up to check this morning and :phew: :huge sigh of relief: everything was fine :D

The fish were begging for their breakfast, haven't done that for a couple of months. All the plants are doing well, but I need to get the dipel out this afternoon and treat the cabbages for caterpillars.

Huge thanks to Axl's Dad for his great care of the system :cheers:

Looks like a lush rich forest Jaymie. All the hard work is paying off and worth every bit of time in it. Keep up the good work.

Mulberries grow easily from cuttings. In an AP system they could go ballistic!
I also was wondering about the "dunny roll" tubes.

I think the "dunny rolls" are just there to provide some support to the taller plants

I think the toilet paper rolls are around the leeks (leaks?). That should blanch the stems nicely. Or perhaps make grandmother blanch. Hmmm.

the toilet paper rolls are around the leeks and the celery. Well spotted ;) There is always plenty of them and they'll vanish eventually.
