Through the selection of three different types of seeds, we have begun our germinating process. We decided on growing wax peppers, however are germinating wax peppers, bell peppers, and cucumbers. The variation allows us to take advantage and plant the fastest to germinate seed. Germination will take place enclosed in a plastic bag with a moist paper towel and placed in the sun.
The building process of our system has continued to move on steadily. We have all of our pieces in tact and have since done trial runs for leaks.
After repairing any leaks, we loaded up the system with water to test the rate at which water will flow through the tubing to the plants. The tubing is equipped with an adjustable rate of water flow valve.
