Welcome back, devoted readers! I’m thrilled to unfold a significant chapter in our hydroponic expedition – the momentous transplant of seedlings from our nursery to the cultivation area. The day brimmed with a mix of excitement and nerves as the team meticulously prepared for this pivotal event. Extensive groundwork preceded this historic day, including the careful arrangement of soaking strips in each channel of the 10 panels chosen for our first transplant, meticulous checks on the water emitters, and ensuring the cultivation tank was properly filled.

The precision in placing soaking strips is a crucial measure, ensuring our plants receive the right amount of nutrient-dense water and creating a comfortable bed for our seedlings, enhancing their support system for the upcoming journey.

Ensuring the proper functioning of the water emitters is paramount. These small but critical components bear the responsibility of distributing nutrient-dense water throughout the cultivation area. Their flawless operation is vital, ensuring the nourishment of the roots of our greens hanging vertically on the first 10 panels. As we closely monitor their performance, the anticipation heightens.

Filling the water tank symbolizes the start of a new chapter, not just providing hydration but infusing life into our cultivation area. The nutrient-rich water serves as the lifeblood of our hydroponic system, approached with both excitement and caution. Amid freezing temperatures outside, there’s an added layer of concern, hoping that everything inside the container, including the HVAC system, temperature control, CO2 levels, and the right amount of light, functions seamlessly.

As we carefully placed each seedling into the intricately arranged space, our attention honed in on precision – the essential element for unlocking optimal growth and nutrient absorption. The arrangement of our green ambassadors transcends a mere logistical duty; it’s an art form, a delicate choreography that will shape the future vitality of our produce.

Now, we wait, check, and nurture our beautiful plants daily, ensuring each receives the optimal amount of light, CO2, and water, and stays within the right temperature for optimal growth. In the coming weeks, we’ll continue transplanting seedlings, witnessing our hydroponic smart farm slowly come to life.

Stay tuned for more updates as I share our journey at Oasis Orchard and Farm, especially the eagerly awaited first harvest in four weeks. 😊
