Container garden [The settling bottle saga]


Last Edited: October 20, 2017, 9:21 pm

Went out before dark and checked on the settling bottle. It is still cloudy, About one inch of flotation on the top now. Looks like the vermiculite settled to the bottom with something else of the same weight. Just above that is some sort of lighter material that settled. Seen a few of the top flotation particles dropping to the bottom.  the top flotation must be soaking up water for them to drop. Like a floating log until it gets water logged and drop to the bottom of a body of water. Must be some really fine lightweight particles making the water cloudy yet.

When it is all settled I may carefully remove each layer to figure out what each layer contains.

All the past months of work and nothing for the dinner table yet.

Figure I may get some lettuce here shortly as that does not take long to grow in nutrient rich soil they say.

What gets me you look out and see all these weeds thriving just on their own. May just as well be a forager like Ewell Gibbons was.

I will say one thing about being a forager for wild edibles. You need to be well taught on recognizing each plant that is edible and how to prepare it. A lot of poisonous plants out there that can kill you or mess you up real bad.
