First Seedlings Planted

I spent $5 at Home depot on 12 seedlings this afternoon.  (4 broccoli and 8 lettuce)  I planted half of them in the aquaponics growbed and the other half a raised bed.  I added some seaweed based liquid fertilizer to the aquaponics system.  It is a pain to get the soil out of the roots when transplanting seedlings.  I’ll probably be doing lots of comparisons between aquaponics and dirt gardening this year.  At this point, I have no fish producing any nutrient, so I don’t expect them to do very well.  I also broadcast some lettuce and spinach seed in the growbed, just to see if they will sprout.
