Nice new bed... :thumbright: Is that a passionfruit I see hanging down? Is it growing in the system?

Thanks Guy's
earthbound the passion fruit is growing in the ground, but it's watered with AP water. It runs the full length of the fence in the back yard & I get buckets of fruit of it.

So it's the school holidays & I sent some time away from home, was well surprised to find new sprouts in the new GB. I hand watered the new GB for the fist few days after set up & We had 40mm of rain here the other day.

A month later & the new bed is filling out, with more seedlings popping up from the reused media all the time. We have had a lot of rain this month which has helped random dormant seed from the previous GBs' germinate, mostly celery. A bit of weeding of the ferals to be done to make room for the keepers. I've planted some cabbage in place to fill the spaces.
Unfortunately the Chinese veg seedlings that I planted have decided to bolt to seed, maybe transplant shock ? Ill leave some to go to seed & try again later. They are attracting beneficial & providing pollen for my bees in the mean time.

:wave1: I've been over seas for the last 3 weeks. There's been a quite significant changes to the system in that time. Nearly all the bok choy have bolted to seed. The cauliflower & broccoli have headed up & in general more growth all round.

Wow! Three weeks away and it still looks pretty damn good. That Cauli is huge! Did you have an AP sitter?

Gday Boss. My kids looked after the AP system while I was away & I told them to keep the feed rates to a minimum, so no dramas with water issues. The Cauli was made into a delicious soup & it was the biggest one I have ever grown, it grew out of a 70mm NFT pot which was most impressive.
The bed needs a bit of a clean out now & it's time to start some summer planting in before it gets too hot. I guess you would be getting ready for the winter months?

70mm NFT pot, wow that must've been busting the sides! We have one purple Cali coming. I never grew one before, its pretty cool looking.
We are, but not hurriedly so. We had a late Summer hail a few days ago that damaged most of the outside veggies, knocked peppers and leaves off. They may get a chance to do a little come-back before the frost, but then again I'm often naive about when first frost is.
