Today I officially handed over the commercial site to the client. Everything is now installed and all the ponds, growbeds, pumps etc. are working fine. The heat pump that we installed last week is not coping with the cold weather so we have ordered a much bigger unit which arrives tomorrow. Once the water temperature is up to 25 degrees, I’ll order the fingerlings.
As mentioned previously, everything that we have planted in this system is growing like crazy including all the seeds sowed directly into the gravel.
We are planning a “greenhouse-wetting” party that will have to come after the Knysna Oyster Festival which hits us from this weekend, with non-stop parties.
In closing, a photograph of the completed system and some little tomato seedlings popping out of the gravel.
I will post some follow-up images in a month or two from this site, but for now we will be concentrating on the two tunnel site at Gouna.
I have numerous enquiries for similar systems from all over South Africa, so the future looks really interesting.
Cheers for now.
