Best of luck to you Zach. Wow, I can barely imagine that kind of cold. I'm suffering here in Southeast Alabama this year with nighttime temps dipping into the low twenties. My new (relocated) system will be housed inside structure to help combat thos few cold nights. For the most part, my biggest concern has always been shade or cooling in the summer. I suppose if I were to espouse advice, it would be to think about future expansion early on. I went for the simplest method I could but realized later that the simplicity of my system did not lend well to adding grow beds or additional filtering for raft beds or any other ventures into a hybrid system. Again, best of luck to you and keep in touch to let me know how it's going.
James, nice video.
I am hoping to start the same thing you showed in your video, with some changes as I am living in the north and our temp this morning was minus 33 with wind chill or minus 20 degrees C. i built a greenhouse 8 foot by 10 foot that I hope over summer I can take half and give this aquaponics a try for next winter.
Any advice would be welcome I am starting from zero and as your video showed mistakes are common for everyone, hope to make few and get the same kinds of plants as you with loads of kale.
Stay tuned. I'm currently in the process of upgrading my system and moving it to a new location. A mishap with one of my grow beds forced the upgrade but it was for the best because now I'll be able to increase my grow bed size and also be able to add future growbeds/rafts/wicking beds/NFT.
Thank you James. Well done.
Thanks. I do believe that it was okay to go cheap at first until I learned more about this kind of gardening. Now I'm hooked and am planning on expanding/improving my system. Who knows, I might even try selling some herbs at this year's farmer's market!
very impressed I want to do this
