The result was the tasteless vegetables

Hai, Good Afternoon from Malaysia. Basically i did some research recently. In Malaysia, the farmers did try a hydroponic ten years ago .

The result was the tasteless vegetables .( not sweet) 

Is it true that our aquaponic is tasteless as well if compare to soil grow vegetables??

The second thing is the water only can used for few times. and the water became polluted. polluted to environment as well.

The third thing is the vegetable shrink if fried, or withered ,dry…

Aquaponic Indoor Garden-raising fish-Low cost organic food little labor

This could be the best way to say money on Organic food and have it all year round with very little labor involved once you have set up your system. We all like saving eating great organic food and 25 square feet of space will feed one person. Use no soil and have a beautiful indoor garden or outdoor if you choose.

Musings and Plans.

Sometimes I feel like I am staring at a blank canvas. Well, mostly blank but easily corrected. I have a wide range of skills, growing up in a family of do-it-yourselfers and engineers will do that. I can pour concrete, weld, currently working as a plumber, frame, and just about build anything. I would like to set up an aquaponic garden for not just myself, but my father as well. You see he's been slowly losing his vision for the last 30+ years. He also was raised to take pride in the work of…

I will have to source all…

This Makes It Even More Necessary to Develop Food Sources Free From Contamination

The story below states how the Fukushima Daiichi power generating station experienced a 6.0 magnitude earthquake today.  Apparently, we're supposed to trust the company, TEPCO, who has lied to us at every turn about the severity of the disaster, to tell us that there were no further complications from today's seismic events.  Every day that goes by where I don't have an aquaponics set up alive and well I feel more and more vulnerable to this man-made disaster.  It is quite serious, and…

BSF- AP'ers are so far ahead of the rest of the world

The reports of my death have been really overblown.  I have to admit, it was close.  Am home from the extended stay in the hospital after the surgeries.  Again the doctor's comment is that I am just too mean to die.  So, any way, was surfing trying to catch up and saw this on the collection of Black Soldier Flies.  To me it is amazing that others are just finding some of the things we have known for a long time.…
