Ok guys here is some pics of the pre move, the move and the new and improved 2nd system Ive been working on so far. Its been a bumpy ride moving to my new house but when finished I think the system will comprise of :-

4 x 400L GB's
12 x Strawberry Towers
1500L FT
Flood and drain timed with 4 port indexing valve.
Still undecided how it will end up but you gotta have a plan.

Took some snaps of the progress so far so here we go...

This is the corn I tried to save.. isnt looking healthy now that I have replanted but this is what it looked like before moving.

First GB empty, not easy to shovel from shoulder height, the media was surprisingly clean although the bottom inch was full of dirt.

A temporary FT is in place to the new one arrives and I still have 2 GB's to get on frames. All the strawb towers to be made aswell. I plan to board in the whole thing with timber and also a little decking around the FT and some nice pavers for the floor. Long way to go yet but hope you like the progress.

:thumbleft:

They probably aren't used to people that will actually use the shed either.... Make sure you use the drop saw and grinder a bit on the weekends... :)
