Please tell us something else about yourself.
I live in Jackson, Michigan, a Zone 5a completely surrounded by the Great Lakes a solid Zone 4. I have been studying More Gardening Chemistry, completely Organic Gardening, Aquaponics , and OTG (Off The Grid) Farming. My 1st project; I have access to a pond about 1.5 Acres and I plan to build a raft pond next to it so I can pump from the fish pond. I have 64 or so Tomato plants plus other Green Plants like Lettuce and Purple Cabbage.

UPDATE: My wife Nixed the use of the Property with the pond as it is her parents place and her Dad and I did all things like this. But Dad died just days before Christmas, that's why I named the Farm "Bob's Lil' Red Truck Farm" because that is ALL Dad ever wanted for Christmas and I FINALLY found him one last year and he never got it.

AND last nail in my best laid plans is when I was taking my very young plants outdoors to start a little "Hardening" at 49 F Degrees and the door hit my both my flats and I lost EVERY plant as they fell in a mess indoors and outdoors. So now I have to wait to buy them from a Reputable company like Wholefoods. I rented 1600 Sq Ft of Garden from Dahlem Conservancy for this year as well as my 5' X 8' Greenhouse, and what I can get out of my 300 Gal Ibc Tank.
