How did you find us?
Through Ooooby
Are you an aquaponic gardener already?
kinda sorta
If so, what type of system? (pick all that apply)
I am using a 35 gal. gold fish pond (preformed) and faking it.
Please tell us something else about yourself.
I am learning to do aquaponics as I go and find that since plants and fish go together in my mind that it works. I have always had a pond and fountain in my garden.

Pool 11?

Posted on July 2, 2012 at 9:36pm 0 Comments

The fire is still burning but they have it partially contained and some folks are going to get to be home again.

I forgot in all the mess to put the mosquito dunk in... the water is just crawling with larvae. I hope to have gotten it in there in time to avoid mosquito hell.

I have a small water lilly in p2 now and a bag of barley straw. Tomorrow I have a busy day, but Wednesday I plan on making the first of the rafts.

I plan on using 1/2" gravel for the first pots…

We have a arsonist it seems. The fire lines are still four miles away from us. However I have been on the oxygen tether much of the time since Saturday, and have not done anything to take pictures of.

I started to cycle pool number two yesterday.

So far so good. The dogs hate it as they think it is the big bath time o' doom. Yes, they got the ritual dunk where everyone laughed at the wet daushunds... mortification is good for my little killer of rats.

Pool number one is so overgrown now even after a run in with roofers, and two back to back hail storms. I am finally going to take the plunge and start using them for food production. 

Wish me luck.

Pool number 1 horribly overgrown…
