Your green house looks great. Aren't cattle panels the best thing?
My son and I are looking into doing aquaponics in the Springfield area. Do you have Tilapia for sale? If not, where is the closest place to buy? Thanks for your help.

Welcome :-)

Thank you for sharing. Did you paint the tank? If yes, what did you use?
