It has been about a month since my last post and I wanted to share with you our most recent upgrade.
As you can see, we’ve gone vertical!
We do not have much room here in the townhome so to resolve the issue, we opted to grow vertically.
This allows us to MUCH better utilize the limited space we have been given.
The last photo shows our progress:
Two shelves (graciously donated by the parentals) with 5 racks.
Each rack is fitted with t5 grow lights.
Amy skillfully adapted 2 two bulb shop lights into lights that can be plugged into an ordinary plug
(Let us know if you need help doing this yourself)
the bottom two racks are fitted with 4 bulb T5 grow lights from Envirogro.
As you can see, each shelf can now hold 4 trays where the previous setup had us tapped out at 8 all together.
The lights are plugged into a timer that gives the plants 18 hours on, 6 hours off.
We are making real headway starting up this microgreen business.
we’ve been sending samples to willing and local restaurants and have been taking requests for more samples!
What’s on the horizon?
More shelves = More Microgreens!
Stay tuned for more updates 😉
