ready to piece together a SMALL system

I just planted a Flower!

 I just bought this flower today! I forget what kind it is, but I saw it at Imwalle Gardens today, and it told me it needed to live in Tower #3. When I went to transplant it, I learned a valuable lesson: don't rinse off dirt in the sink: the garbage disposal will (probably) eat the dirt just fine, but those white pebbles the proverbial 'they' put in with it will fuck that shit up!

The Earthlings...

I spent four years as a vegan.  I'm seriously thinking about returning to that for both my health and for moral reasons.

This video is difficult to watch, I could not watch the entire video.

The section on food starts at about 17:45. 

Anyone who eats meat should be required to watch this video

November the beginning of the cold season, getting it all sorted out.

Hello everyone, I live in North plains,Oregon. We got introduced to aquaponics in April, we liked what we saw. In June we cleaned up our backyard, built a few more raised beds, did a lot of Internet searching. Then by July first was able to start building a system.
