Vegetable Garden Spotter: the Waterpod
A couple of weeks ago I went to the South Street Seaport and visited the experimental project the Waterpod I mentioned in a previous Reading Round Up. The public wasn't allowed on board, but I didn't feel too bad about that since just watching the barge bob up and down in the water was enough to get me queasy. It's pretty cool, I'm definitely going to visit it again. I kept all the pics at a high resolution so click on each one if you want to get a closer look.
In the above pic I see chard, lettuce, corn maybe.
Some scrawny tomato plants, lettuce, other stuff.
Those big, white vats are part of their water filtration system, but what's growing in the 5 gallon buckets?
My plant id skills do not extend far. What do you see in these pics?
