I figured I would post an update with my window farms project. I’ve had some fun building it, now I just have to get the plants to survive!
http://www.addictiveprojects.com – My blog on how the project is going.
So the pics above show the mostly completed windowfarm, using a 5 gallon bucket and submersible water pump to get water to the top. The part you don’t see is the overflow on the farm left, covered by the curtain. Its so the top part doesn’t overflow and ruin the carpet.
I transplanted the lettuce, they are a bit young but I hope they survive. They did reach the second set of leaves. The tomatoes are pretty much dead. I am trying to save the best 3 of the 24 planted. Honestly not sure what happened because they were doing so well. Thinking maybe the humidity from the plastic dome killed them. Its off now, hoping something might come back.
I also plan to pick up some lights on Thursday for the farm.
