Aquaponics 101 – The dragon arises.

We have had 3 good days at the commercial site. Todays temperature pushed 34 degrees and this is supposed to be Autumn !! We have now completed about 80% of the greenhouse frame. We started by digging 22 small foundations and laying a small (100mm) layer of concrete at the bottom. Then we started assembling the frame. Each joint had to be bolted to prevent the pipes pulling out of each other as follows;

Here are some views of the frame. We should get it finished tomorrow and then commence with all the supporting struts and the plastic next week.

Once we level and strut the frame, we fill the holes with concrete to keep everything perfectly level and in place.

With the plastic on next week we then have the luxury of continuing work even when the rains come.

Enough for now.
