Most of it myself the panels you see is that steel wood grain look expensive but no maintenance

Nice work rod. Might need some explanation on what's going on in these pics. Is the barrel part of the wicking barrel? What is the green thing?

hey Ben the green thing next to the blue barrels is a plastic welder and the black handles are to make it easier to move around

yes Ben the black trays are just seedling trays and i put a layer of paper towel and then some potting mix and then sow some seeds but when i go to work etc they would dry out quickly so i made those yellow trays put some water in the bottom and place the black seedling tray on top and it will wick up the water for the seeds or especially when they have sprouted
