Great color on the Beets shows a well balanced system with nutrients available. Plus it's just plain beautiful!

Thanks for the kind words Boss, it really is such a pleasure to see what aquaponics can do, I wish I had got off my arse a long time ago and done this earlier.

Anyway, a busy weekend out in the garden this weekend, as they all are. My son and I planted out rockmelon, butternut and musquee de provence pumpkin seedlings out under the stonefuit trees. Hoping for a bumper crop of melons and pumpkins! Also planted out 3 x climbing japanese cucumbers went into a wicking bed and another 3 into the aquaponics system. I made up a trellis behind one of the GB's from reo-mesh arched over like a canopy to train the cucumbers up, also plan on using the same bed for Tomatoes to climb over, compare dirt and AP growth. Pulled out a couple of the flowering broccoli from the GBs for chook greens and to open up the beds to allow spinach and chard to get some more sunlight.

I've been having to add approximately 30-40L of water a week to top up the system. I'll need to keep an eye on that, I might have the siphon standpipes a tad long and getting surface evaporation. The surface is dry, dampness starts ~20-25mm down, might need to shorten them by a further 25mm or so.

Using a good mulch will help with evaporation.
