Has55's SFG Journey- Aquajet

Post  has55 on 11/3/2014, 8:30 pm

I'm late reporting my results with the Aquajet. As many knows I have the earthmister underground irrigation system installed in my SFG beds. I been please with the system, but I'm getting better results with the Aquajet that I have installed in my pepper and tomatoes beds. the earthmisters no longer exist. One of the founder (Robb) made another similar system called the Aquajet. it better design and stronger with delivery of water and oxygen. there is a learning curve, like getting use to not seeing the water above ground, getting use to decrease watering time, or if the soil is too porous and how to address it.  I tended to want to water till I see the water or longer minutes, thus overwatering and panicking. Robb helped me think differently. maybe others will give it a try.

John K did a follow up video to an Aquajet video he made earlier that received many negative remarks because most people didn't listen to the whole video. He addressed it with this video. the first video is long, but the followup is shorter. hope it's helpful for those who like to learn more. I used bricks for my Earthmister and Aquajet supports.

Aquajet Follow Up at John Kohlers Growing Your Greens 8/22/2015

Post  has55 on 10/19/2015, 9:40 am

I placed this follow up because I'm still having good result with the aquajet. I was impressed with what john had to say about growing his food in 100-155 temps and thought it may be helpful for those who are to thinking about getting it, esp those you live in hot climates and have water restrictions . I just found out that NASA has asked them to be part of the space testing for growing food in space since the system is underground, waters and aerate the soil with each watering cycle. I'm a space nerd, so this is exciting to me.

If I may, I would like to high jack your post to mention a book I just finished yesterday, It was hard to put down once I started. The book The Martian describes the odessy of an astronaut/botanist left behind on Mars and what he does to stay alive. I don't know if the movie was any good but I enjoyed the book.

Sanderson, so you're a space buff too. My wife and I enjoyed the movie and I would referred friends to view it. I been slow on reading since my vision change. I'm trying to make the adjustment. It seem to have took my fire and joy for reading down a notch or two.

I'm sorry your vision has shifted. I like any book that is well written, especially those with a "what if" scenario. This one has botany, biology, chemistry, physics and space (and humor). I can't wait to rent the movie. Maybe this winter we can have a book and/or movie review topic. Not much else one can do when it's freezing.

I'm at work and it looks like I didn't add the youtube video to the 10/19/2015  post. At least I don't see it here. So I'm going to put it in now. If it there, I just put in twice. Bare with me. thanks. The temperture part was interesting.

aquajet on Facebook

for those he may want to get more info on the aquajet. There a guy who installed it in F octagon green house. Also a school and someone near me here in Texas on their backyard farm. As in earlier post, they were asked to submit for possible approval for experimental trails. They just been accepted and approved to be part of NASA trials here on earth for possible use in future space exploration.

great video of SFG and the aquajet installed by Tatiana Ortiz.
The video song kind of make want to lift your hands and wand back and forth in the wind and whisper," Look at california".

Published on May 26, 2015
My first video posting on Youtube and my first container garden. We made the beds and installed the irrigation system ourselves! Research and inspiration all found here on YouTube. Main resources: Growing your Greens, Irrigation system by Intelligent Irrigation LLC., Soil amendments, water filters and tea from Boogie Brew.

The initial plan was building two beds. Once we finished we decided why not, lets build two more! Eac
