Although it feels like forever, we finally have a radish growing. It’s a bit disheartening because only one seed seems to have taken off. Further investigation revealed a second radish that sprouted leaves but refuses to push through to the surface. There is some concern that the water-logged grow bed (during the fill cycle) allows the Hydroton to float too freely and doesn’t support the plant. We will be continuing to monitor the plants. No lettuce seems to have taken. We can’t find any germinated seeds in the bed. Also, we recently added 12 Nightcrawlers to the grow bed to help process the fish waste. Our hope is that they will better distribute the waste product so that the plants receive the nutrients they need to thrive.
