10/28/2010 replanting

Two weeks after our first plantings, we still have had only one baby mesclun seed begin to grow, so we decided to replant the other two plants. we chose to plant mesclun instead of baby mesculn since it has a shorter germination period and a shorter harvest period, and will therefore hopefully be ready for harvest around the same period that the one baby mesculn will be ready for harvest.

In other news, our system has yet to leak again, so we think we have that problem solved.

Also, Brett made a larger reservoir for the bottom section of our garden out of polycarbonate, made to fit exactly into the box, which increased our reservoir volume by about 1/3rd, so this should enable us to run the garden for longer periods of time without topping off the system, allowing for the system to be more self-sufficient.
