If you go to Bayfield, you might want to check out Basin coop in Durango. They normally have a good selection.
When are you planning to go. This week is bad for me.
If you have a bulkhead shopping list, I could check here in Cortez.
We have several stores that have them.
Meet in Durango ?

I'll get it sorted one way or another....but thank you.

I normally go online b/c it makes things easier, but the ones that have been failing were from Amazon. Probably great for a flat, smooth surface, but they just don't have a thick enough gasket on the inside to seal properly. I am through with my gorilla phase of tighten until it can be no more.

The ones from TSC have a thicker gasket and are much beefier. Also, if memory serves, the larger 2-3" fitting they have is only $13.00 while the smaller sizes are all 7.99.

As far as travels this week, nothing going on. I'll probably be up first part of October unless something comes up sooner?

Yes, but I am usually doing something that does not allow me enough time to let it cure properly.

I'll put some plumbers putty in between the barrel and the washer and it seems to do just as well, I just can't seem to find my lifetime supply....

It just takes an hour or so for silicon to cure to be water proof, patience :D

We will get some serious night frost over the weekend into next week. Might even snow with the rain that is supposed to come.
I am not ready for that crap.

Ow! Look what they make us give.


Do you get the headaches?
It's been a month or so since I forgot about using cloth gloves around the drill press :support: I hope it's not my turn for any more "accidents." I don't mind scars that much. :shifty:

I was doing something, wearing gloves while cutting with skilsaw, thumb got to close and thankfully material bound it just enough to let me keep the tip of my thumb.

From then on, set @ correct depth and keep clear, it is not a matter of if but when.....

Exactly. I'm talking to my wife this morning about learning memory exercises as we can not seem to recall much of the knowledge we've gained over the years.

Removed the raised grow bed. The other will be coming out tomorrow and will float /level ground in preparation for (2) 4x23' DWC beds with space to add another (3) 4x15'.
Image

This area served as overflow storage for whatever I stuffed in here. Let's just say there was ALOT of things to remove to get this the way it looks now.
Image

Thinking I'll pull back the block and bury the sump in the general area of where the tote is and of course do away with the grow bed. Media will go to Dutch buckets and the old system to be put out to pasture.....

If I was going to rebuild the troughs instead of having three I would go for two,the poly that's available here is 1.2 long,so I would have one trough at 2.4 the other at 1.2. The wide one would be for lettuce celery etc,the smaller one for the row of toms,Cucs peppers etc,the wide one I can reach almost to the middle form each side,but rarely needed to in the troughs I have now,to harvest I would just push them down the trough replacing with new at the start.The second trough I clan easily walk around and reach everything,ideal for the row of toms etc,but Iam saving a walkway which is 50cm by what ever the trough length is,this works out at quite a large growing area.
For a small backyard system not an issue but when we are talking about the size of your troughs there is a space saving to be made.

I am 30 x 36. Allowing an 18" walkway between the two troughs. Current FT area is a 10x10 inside the greenhouse and if I were to move to the coop, I would have 10x18 but have to cross 18 feet and farthest point would be diagonal of the GH.

I was foing to do toms/cucs./peppers in Dutch Buckets and only bring one 4x23 online to start.

It is hard b/c we are trying to sell and I dont want to spend the resources and have them go to waste by the next owner.

This is good b/c making me think of all scenarios, now I just have to commit to something for my cycling is almost complete.

I'm loving the pics of the greenhouse getting cleaned out. That's something to get me excited I'm not on the same page as you guys getting worked up over plumbing and flow rates and filters... That will be another day for me I guess.. I am thinking very hard about building a bigger fish tank in my greenhouse. It will probably be a next fall project at the earliest though... At that point I'll have to see what I can learn from your guys pictures of filters and such ;)
