Since I had to empty out the garden bed, I took advantage of the opportunity and washed all the rock. Washing rock one or two buckets at a time was a terribly long process. I cleaned two and a half tons of rock on my patio table like this. Each table load was about one and a half buckets of rock.
You can see how dirty the rock was.
I spent several days washing rock like this.
I finally got all the rock done and back in the planter. Once I got the cycling working, the plants were moved back in. I hope they do ok. They were definitely stressed. Most of the plants were wilted. I also got a different liquid seaweed. This one seemed much better. It really smells like the ocean and seaweed.
