G'day guys,

I've been busy... I have been given an old poly water tank that had a doorway cut out of it and was used for a site toilet shed setup lol. No excrement was actually in there at any time though thankfully. I have cut the tank in half long ways and dug it into the ground a little to stop it from rolling away, it's full of water and holding its shape "fairly" we'll lol I'm gunna need to put some support braces on it to stop it from bowing out completely. I also cut my old ibc fish tank down into a growbed size and plumbed it all up with bell siphon straight back into the poly tank.

Ill get some photos up of all that this arvo probably, but for now ill just put some up of the fire that almost burnt all my hard work down haha. Enjoy!

Yea upgrading a bit :) I've got a nice big new sump pump to which I had to split the outgoing pipe because it was too strong lol but the other pipe is giving some good circulation in the tank so I'm stoked.

Righto had some time to get some pics this arvo. Mind the mess I'm still on construction mode lol not cleanup mode at all Image it has all been running pretty well so I threw some seeds in that I had, just a bit of a mixture really. Cress, tomatoes, assorted peppers, and a mixture of lettuce and herbs. I'm excited to see what comes up and in what kind of rows haha ImageImage this is where my new pump tees off for the GB and a lot of circulation. Image I've put some metal bracing on to hold the shape but this is only temporary, I will be putting some timber or metal supports along each cut to hold it. Image
