The avocado looks like it may be making progress, but I'm not really sure what I'm looking for. The bottom has a lump, perhaps roots forming? The top is peeling and showing a soft underneath part. Part of the cut has odd crystals forming on one side.
I know it's a bad photo, but if you look carefully, this is the stem of one of the apple tree branches in the vase of water. There are little roots forming!
I haven't updated about the floating garden lately - just three peas and three peppers right now. Not truly an aquaponics system right now as the plants are in a container floating, not absorbing nutrients directly from the tank. I really need to figure out how to correct it so that the plants can be grown the way I want them (aquaponically).
And in the most frustrating new discovery - I've found out that my plants are not just being chewed and trampled by my cats - they have been peeing in them as well! I caught Henry peeing in my bell peppers tonight - right in front of me! Needless to say, tomorrow I will be putting up fencing around the plant shelves to prevent the cats from getting in there any more. I'm going to have to dump the peed in pepper plant. Incredibly frustrating! Grrrr!!!!!
