Aquaponic Crop Rotations

In Aquaponics, Gardening on September 13, 2012 at 10:11 pm

Since we erected the gutter system in the greenhouse, we have had a number of difficulties to overcome. One such problem that has arose is the fact that the shade cover only extends across half of the gutters, leaving the far side completely exposed.

The solution was simple. Crop rotations. One wonderful feature of the gutter system is that it is incredible modular. One the pump is turned off, the small supply lines can be removed, and each gutter can be moved as a unit. It was easiest to have one person stand on each end of the system and simply lift the gutters to swap locations. We moved all of the new seedlings to the inside, where they would be better protected, and relocated the larger plants outward where they would receive full sun.
