A little experiment we are doing here at the Manor to try to transplant aquaponic seedlings into dirt beds. It would really reduce our input costs.

I am sure everyone finds their own way when it comes to gardening. And it is what you finds suits you the most and best. Just enjoy the ride, you never know where it will lead you, my path has led me to BLF...
I lost everyone one of the seedlings in the aquaponics bed Dianne. The sun killed the lot during those two really hot days last week. I have completely rebuilt the shade cloth as a result. Transplanting out of aquaponics has not proven successful for me.
How are the Lettuce going Andrew?
I grow all my produce in the ground and grow bags and pots. I don't have any trouble to speak of, well nothing I can't live with, except that I usually put in far too many seeds (I can't feel the seeds in my fingers and hands), but at least with BLF I have somewhere to give away my extras when I have filled up the neighbours fridges.
I can really appreciate the way you garden, If I was to do my garden again I would take on board a lot of your ideas, but my garden has been laid out for years and there is no starting over again now, so I will have to just look on at others.
Good luck with it all.
Would seem so Elaine.
Rob, the water normally goes a couple of centimeters below the top of the balls. The seedlings in the aquaponics bed are under 70% shade cloth. I've also begun experimenting with planting my lettuces under other things in the dirt beds - corn or egg plant for example. That seems to help too.
