Adventures in Aquaponics

Growbed Veggies

(be sure to click on a photo above)

The aquaponic experiment continues. Fish and plants are doing great. Only thing being added is water and fish food. I either have a leak or the plants are absorbing and respiring water. I hope its the latter. Otherwise I have to start checking for the leak. We’ll see this winter when the plants die back.

I’m thinking of moving the growbeds to the other side of the sidewalk. Right now its in a planter area. Doesn’t get as much sun as the other side. Shouldn’t be too difficult to move once the plants are gone. Just drain and move. Have to decide on the plumbing route. The other side of the sidewalk has a longer open space, so could possibly add two more growbeds.

Thinking of adding bluegills in the spring. Takes maybe two years to mature.
