Massive Heat Wave! Transitioning to Summer Gardening | Weeks 8 - 10 | NFT 72

Topics of these weeks of hydroponic gardening:
Hot weather!!!
Harvesting lettuce and Chinese cabbage before the heat
Floating Gravel getting stuck in places it shouldn't be
Mesh Screen filter test
Basil getting bigger, almost ready to propagate
Hydroponic Amaranth? 
The lettuce and Chinese cabbage have started to bolt. I've tried some of the lettuce at this stage and it was getting bitter. There was an incident where a small piece of the floating gravel floated into the outlet tubing of the spacer channel and clogged it. To prevent something like this from happening again, I am brainstorming an in-channel filter to help regulate debris from reaching the outlets.
