AP system #1 has been banished from the house.
Tomato roots grew into the drain and caused one of the GB's to overflow onto the carpet. So I hauled everything outside to the unfinished greenhouse and am blowing a fan under the carpet to dry things out down here.

The tomatoes were pretty fragile after being inside with little or no air movement or disturbance. Hopefully they will recover.

And a few shots of the greenhouse we built for my wife's flowers. Notice the fishtank in the right rear corner. I hope the tomatoes survive the shock of being torn out of a warm basement and dumped into a cold greenhouse. (The carpet is almost dry downstairs but it still smells like dirty socks....)

It's almost becoming embarrasing to post a system on here that's less than half a small town..... or at least half a town block.....

Coming together very nicely... again I'm envious of others practicle abilities and financial capabilities.... but at least I can admire a good thing and beautiful work in progress :D

mate did you have to remove a set of traffic lights and the local 7-11 to fit that thing in? You said it was big but i didn't know you meant BIG. Looks like tilapia wrapped in fancy lettuce at your joint NY Eve for 8000 of your closest friends.
P.S. that blue thing at the end in pic one, is it your house or your fishtank?

Didn't read all of your topic; I hope that you have a bigger fish pond than just those goldfish to supply those growbeds! :lol:

I've exceeded both with this project. :)

It sure seemed like it -- I had to dig through snow, frozen ground, drop several large trees, remove a Ford axle, an old mattress, and piles of brush and rotten pallets. So far no regulatory hassles -- though my neighbor behind me may have gotten used to the view he had for a month or two....

I've got two goldfish, 5 tinfoil barbs, 4 pacus (5"),4 oscars (14"), 4 Plecos (6" to 15") and 11 Tilapia. Hopefully there will be a population explosion before my tanks are ready for fish.

believe me, I used the shovel too, I just prefer the bobcat. :)

Google earth has old data for my area. I can see find my house, but the deck is missing and there's a big patch of trees where my neighbor's house is.

Google has to recalibrate their satellites to fit it in.

all I get for my place is a big green blur, the resolution is pretty crap, you can see there are tiny blobs for houses, but not the cars outside ;)
