Little update !

 

Greenhouse is jam packed! I have difficulty watering my plant.

The plants are getting bigger and are healthy.

Bell peppers are on steroid,

Automation is also doing good.

Humidity and temperature are controlled by my own custom program with Arduino.

 

My father was in charge of electronics and I was in charge of the code.

 

 

The electronics are in the wooden box. 

 

I can control the heater and fan independently. Both humidity and temperature are controlled in real time via my program.

 

The raspberry pi is communicating with wi-fi to my house while both wooden box are communicating with each other.

 

One is monitoring soil moisture and outside humidity and temperature and is in charge to communicate to my web interface where I can check my greenhouse status.

 

The other one is monitoring inside humidity and temperature and control whether the heater or fan are ON or OFF.

 

 

Next step is to add automatic irrigation system with a water solenoid valve and this kit I just bought.

Thank for watching!

Alright time to go outside.

 

I've been hardening them for 3 days now and its time to put them in the greenhouse

 

I'm trying to grow in bucket this year to see the difference.

 

I'm doing a rock bottom to help drainage

 

Then I'm using a mix of  black dirt

shrimp compost

manure

and concentrated shrimp powder

We decided to make an extension for the greenhouse but finally it was too big and the neighbor was going to make a complaint. (We live in the city so there are strict rules)

We will use it for something else I guess.

 

That what we have so far. We ran out of bucket! I still have to plant 8 plants.

I am more than 1 month ahead of schedule this year as I planted them outside June 20th last year!

 

Have a nice season guys!

Just a little update

 

My father was gone for 5 days without telling me so when I went to check on them this is what I found out.

 

18176057_10212564632889175_1881676870_o_

 

Hopefully after a little bit of water they were back 100% in just 1 day

It seem like I have a new disease

 

18280629_10212622572257623_2106868984_n_

 

There is like 1 million little prickles and I dont know what it is ( We can see it better on bottom leave to the right)

 

Also some plants are doing great while some are dying for some reasons.

 

18336613_10212621972242623_1948609076_n_

 

There is many plants that just stopped growing at all while some are doing so good they are flowering

 

18308622_10212622565257448_120445857_n_z

 

Every plants so far

 

18318337_10212622564057418_173625228_o_z

 

 

I just don't know what to do.

 

Too much or not enough light

Too much or not enough water

Too many or not enough nutrient

 

:tear:

 

This glog is a catastrophe lol  :confused:
