As existing hydroponic and aquaculture farming techniques form the basis for all aquaponics systems, the size, complexity, and types of foods grown in an aquaponics system can vary as much as any system found in either distinct farming discipline.
So we have been thinking of this aquaponics system for sometime now but never had a good place for it. Now we have a small aquaponics system up and running and hopes of a larger system that could feed many people if we needed to. So from start up to today this is our trial run of aquaponics.
We started with an ibc tote to use as a fish tank
Then G-pa came to help us set up the barrel system he made for his system
The garden looked like a construction zone.
Another growing pain. We had a very windy night and for some odd reason the door on the green house had blown off and I couldn't get it back on. So the broom held it in there until hubby got home. LOL
We started with 35 larger fish in the ibc tote and 110 smaller fish in the shop in little tanks.
I'll update more later. But for now I have to get busy with the daily tasks.
