Looking great. Have a great season.
I'm still loving the microfibre towels for my lettuce.
Aloha

I notice you plant several seeds in the same hole. Do you transplant them all, or just the best one?

For the newbie here, what are the cubes you are starting the seeds in? Can you briefly describe the process? Looks like a nice clean set up.

These are 3" rockwool cubes using a lot with hydroponics.....they are wonderful to use in doors compared to having dirt and bugs etc indoors....start the seeds in 1" cubes and insert them after rooting into the larger cubes.....cheers....

You use four buckets? I've done a two bucket set up; are the bottom three all reservoirs? What are you using for wicks?
