In this post I will continue talking about my greenhouse and the things inside.
How the aquaponic and hydroponic systems will work
The water will be pumped from a drum and fills the top bed. When it gets to a certain level, the bed will be drained by an automatic bell siphon. The drained water then goes to the bed below. When that bed fills with water, the water will be drained by an automatic loop siphon. And this water then goes back to the drum where it came from.
The bed where I’ll be gardening in soil, will be watered using a drip system.
There’s also a worm bin in there and a tilapia bin. The worm bin will be very large. I’ll start the worms in one of the corners in a bedding of newspaper. Then I keep adding a row of food scraps till I fill the bottom layer of it. Then I start feeding in the corner again and I keep going till a fill another layer. So I continue till I fill the whole worm bin.
I’ll also have a little square bed with soil in it where I’ll be planting seeds. When they are big enough, I will transplant them to where they are supposed to be. This hasn’t been made yet.
That’s all I have to say about my greenhouse. Photos will come soon and comments are welcome!
