So today, Chi, Miguel and my husband Jesus started building our AP system. Chi and Miguel drove over an hour to build this "Bunk Bed" system, because that's what the kiddos said it looks like. Chi introduced us to AquaPonics as a way to supplement our diet with fresh veggies and fish. Miguel did most of the construction while Chi farted around :) The whole family is excited to embark on this journey to better healthier living through AquaPonics!
Here are some pictures:
No one was injured in the making of this system.
Jesus, my husband. Men look so sexy with power tools.
My daughter Yasmeen.
Miguel the carpenter extraordinaire on the left. And the kiddos Yasmeen, Israel and Ishmael.
Chi and his commanding finger.
More pictures to come as we progress...
It takes years of training to fart around as well as I do.
Specs on the AP system:
3'x5'x2' deep Tank
4'x6'x8" deep Grow Bed
Media will be something cheap
And those years of training have paid off, Chi, because you know that the important thing is showing up for the group photo at the end of the day. ;-)
The system looks great so far! Is it going to be pond lined?
So today Chi and Miguel came up today to button up the Bunk Bed system. Next week we add 3/4" drain rock for the grow bed! This will be a constant flow system. Chi didn't want to mess with an auto siphon yet

Kids getting REALLY REALLY excited.
The kids are giddy with excitement!
