Welcome aboard.. getting management approval is often a problem..
"WHAT ARE YOU BUILDING.... We don't have the room..."

Now, when fresh tomatoes hang from the roof and fresh "cut and come again"salads are just there.... it is now a case of "..let's build one there and we can......."

Welcome to an addictive world of Wot If....

If you get one to work, then you WILL want to expend...
The best recommendation that I could make is PLAN for Lone Fish Tank, and a Media Grow bed and at least one raft bed..
Were I planning again, then there would be a start with TWO IBCs, prepared as fish tank and Media-Bed and Raft-Bed..

You may have seen the thread on "Two IBC, what next"

:withstupid: That's what got it over the line for me.

My wife was like "great another one of your projects" lol and now she is talking expansion on a system that is only 3.5 weeks old :thumbleft:

You need to find her motivators - usually money :lol: Then tell her how much money you can save by not having to go to the shop for produce, and it's fresher and healthier!!

Have look at some of Jay's (jayendra) threads. He is based out of warragul, I think, and he has some fantastic systems.
