I have been busy with work and working in the greenhouse but I was able to find some time to get some images updated on the greenhouse progress. Using Solexx sure does rock but I fear that I must lose a couple of trees outside before next season. Either way these plants shown below are all now exactly two months old from transplant. Pretty impressive if you consider that they were not even put into soil or the hydro system until July 1st. Even though I got a late start to the season the progress amazes me every day.

Tomato plants and one row of egg plants
The tomat plant above her head has just amazed me this year. Everyone of those flowers showing is from the same plant. I mean I have had cherry tomatoes before but these are loving the hydroponic system. Don't forget that they are only 2 months old. Most of those flowers are starting to turn into tomatoes and if they all change I was counting 200+ off of just two branches.
It is not that she is short it is that the tomato plants are tall. I am 6'3" tall and they stand over my head. The tallest are the cherry tomatoes with the big beef steaks and other larger varieties down front.
Here is a more close up of the tomatoes in the hydro system. These are gonna be the big ones.
The only problem with kids in your greenhouse is that once they determine what can be eaten you will start to notice your best veggies start to vanish.
This is the end rack which each plant only has about 2-3 inches of rockwool between two layers of rock. Most of these are clones from the larger plants too. I changed the largest tomatillo over to a two liter bottle with nothing but rocks and vermiculite in it. So far it has loved the change. I did it with a second and lost the plant in a matter of 3 days so we all learn each day.
