Christmas in july... ok sure but what about,
Strawberries for Christmas !?
The other nite i came home from work to find a most pleasant surprise. A pair of bright white
Strawberry flowers !! YAY ! This in the middle of december too! I doubt they will mature in
time for christmas, but it will be nice just the same. I am so happy and feel blessed with
this gift in my indoor aquaponics system.
I also have onion flowers blooming, what i think is neat about those is they look like a
bouqette of tiny white flowers. The onion plant has 3 long stems each with blooming fowers.
while i am sharing about new things..my rosies made babies. i found a baby rosie in my sump
tank while doing maintenance last week! The thing that is so special about this finding is the
path the baby had to take to get there. 1st out the water bridge syphon can, to the flaoting
raft tank, another water bridge, to the grow bed (full of lava rock), then travel into the
homemade bell syphon to the gold fish pond, and finaly another water bridge into the sump
tank.I dont know about you but i think this is quite an undertaking for a baby fish. i put him
in a fish tank that i have baby cichlids in as well as a couple adult rosies...and of course a
couple gold fish that got stuck in my water bridge pipe. i thought if they want out of the
pond so bad, then so be it, off to the fishtank with them.
I have mint drying, to give organic mint tea bags out for christmas gifts.
I truely Love my aquaponics!
