How did you find us?
Are you an aquaponic gardener already?
trying to be
If so, what type of system? (pick all that apply)
old man highly skilled in many things, crippled but hanging in there like a hair in a biscuit, have 85 acres, good garden, can't go fishing anymore so want to add fish to the growing process, can still drive my tractor but desperately need ground help (legs), I'll keep going and learning til I'm done, love animals and don't kill any not even my chickens, the coyotes get them, just general old farmer, tool and die maker, welder, electronics degree, vast construction resume, can fix or design almost everything, have just acquired a 40 gal fish tank for aquaponic addition to greenhouse, have 20 55gal plastic drums so will expand when I get started, looking for ideas or plans to save time in my own trial efforts, etc.,etc., ad infinitum, way too much for here, would respond to email but hate "no reply" (slywoman) not her just "no reply" email:)
Please tell us something else about yourself.
was fluent in 3 European languages 40 years ago but probably not so fluent now in my ancient age without speaking for so long, have 15 dogs (perimeter defense) 3 cats one is an odd eyed angora the other two just plain old red tabbies, I have wide interest in all things, I don't necessarily like all things but have interest anyway (know your enemy necessity), I live in a rural area, no woman in my life but my niece helps me out with the big jobs of hauling wood, shopping etc. I've been in many countries and it would take a thousand pages to cover each of some three month periods in my adventures through life so I'd better quit now!

Good Day,

How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately.I have something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on this email( ) for the full details,
Have a nice day

Thanks God bless.
Mrs Abiola.

Hi Robert,

Sounds like there might be an issue with the auto-reply...can you forward the "no reply" email to me? Thanks!

Also sounds like you are quite a guy. So happy to have you here. Thanks for joining the Aquaponic Gardening community! I hope you find it a fun place to explore aquaponics. There is a real blend of experienced and new aquapons in this community, so please don’t hesitate to get in there and start asking questions. Everyone is quite happy to help out new members – no question is too basic.

A great place to start is by checking out the forums, blogs and groups. If you are interested in a forum or blog topic, but don’t want to join in right away, just check the “follow” box to be notified whenever there is activity on that subject.

We have just one rule: keep it cordial (no flaming!).

Thanks again for joining us, and I look forward to getting to know you.

Sylvia (slywoman)
