Farm Update 29th April 2014

Hello and welcome to the Latest Vertical Farm update.

Harvests are continuing to go well with regular crops of basil and coriander being harvested for our production kitchen and used for making soup. Pepper and Chilli plants continue to grow well and some of them have started to flower meaning we will be adding phosphate rock to the aquaponic systems to boost production.

After a recent visit to a local country show it got me thinking how far agriculture has come in the last 100 years. Many of the crops produced in our vertical farm weren't even available when this steam engine was produced. Now we are able to grow whatever we want all year round in a shorter time. Makes you wonder where we will be in 100 years time will the vertical farm concept be out dated and replaced with something better?
