What a difference two months make!

From those puny little tomato plants to 5 foot plants that are 1-2 weeks away from giving us the first ripe fruit!
I think that the rockwool slab system I'm trying out this year isn't quite as good as the clay pebbles I've used the last 2 seasons. It seems that the plants get stressed more and there are really high swings in EC during the day. Maybe I should cover the trays with white sheeting to reduce heating, but I did not have to do this with the black buckets so I'm not sure.

Anyway, the first cherries are almost there!

I've been harvesting cucumbers for the last 2 weeks. I only have 1 mature plant and I've added 2 seedlings into the system as well to take over once this one gets too manky.

My greens have been neglected a bit and most of them are going to seed. I need to get rid of them and start a new batch.



Your greenhouse plants are looking good!
I've never been very impressed with the rockwool cubes. They're ok, but they're not great.

Thanks! It's the first time I'm using the slabs. I've used smaller cubes before for rooting and I liked them, but the slabs seem quite iffy. Will see what I'll do for next season.
