It isn't Just Aquaponics to me
I'm also into many other things surrounding all sorts of home food production. I've spent much of the past several days canning and preserving. The need was twofold we need to make space in the deep freeze since citrus season is coming on and we need the space to freeze juice but also my stock of canned soup and chile was getting low. See when the cook is not around, I tend to warm up a jar of soup and make my meal that way.
So out came the bags of chicken, turkey, and duck bones (after turkey day is a good time to start some turkey stock of course.) So while I'm out in the back yard getting the caner, jars and all that ready for processing the cook usually does much of the chopping and browns the meat for me for chile then I have to hang out back there to monitor the heat under the caner for the processing time. Couple years ago I got a pressure caner for the holidays and I love having my own soup to eat. Now I have a restocked shelf full of chicken, turkey, and duck soup as well as some jars of stock for cooking and I also did a double batch of chile. We still have lots of green beans and pickles from this past spring and I can be certain that I won't starve quickly should the grocery stores suddenly vanish.
We also make use of a food dehydrator regularly. Whenever we come across a good deal on fruit at the market, what doesn't get eaten quickly fresh gets dehydrated into snack food.
The chickens, Ducks, trees, dirt gardens, AP systems, Compost piles, worm bins, BSF bins, and food preservation are all parts of our greater home food production system.
This time of year is great for this as it is cool enough to spend the day out in the sun without dropping from sun stroke. I do miss my outdoor kitchen canopy.
