We are steadily harvesting and eating the lettuce and using the lemon basil in some great Mediterranean dishes. I have taken a few photos, but since we are steadily trimming the plants, there is really no need to post them.
The PH has needed a couple very small adjustments and I have only added about a gallon of water in the past 6 days due to transpiration. As I stated previously, it takes about 5 minutes of my time each day to monitor a couple things such as water level and PH. Hydroponics continues to be virtually maintenance free.
I am very satisfied with the limited maintenance, high growth rates, and overall ease of use hydroponics. It is time to expand our capacity to grow more greens and keep a crop in harvest rotation at all times. We are getting pretty spoiled with fresh greens in salads and on sandwiches. They are delicious!
I am still making some final decisions on the design of the Deep Water Culture system and will post when I begin the actual build.
