Thanks Maya, but my garden is over 6000 square feet. I don't think the pwc
water will help much. It may be OK for the hanging baskets after a trial run. I don't trust anything on the plants without testing it first. And you are right, cycling a tank is a LOT like gardening. We have the patience for it though. I told JB the tank will be ready about the time we harvest green beans. She's cool with that. She's learning how to test the water now.
Josh, lighting isn't a problem for me. I start all of my plants from seed in a high tech grow chamber and also have a greenhouse. I have lots of full spectrum plant bulbs and fixtures
