Our AquaSprouts premade aquaponic kit
came in the mail before we made it to the big city to buy an aquarium.
So we put together as much as we could
and are now in a holding pattern until the weekend.
While waiting, I figured I'd dig some greenery out of the garden to fill the Grow Bed. Herbs are a good fit for aquarium-size aquaponics setups because they handle low light and nutrients while producing a crop that seems much larger than it is --- a spring of fresh green onions goes a long way in sprucing up an ordinary winter meal. To that end, I'll be transplanting celery, chives, thyme, and Egyptian onions and will soon start some basil from seed to round out the potential crop.
Here's one last
shot...just because I like seeing Mark backlit as he puts the finishing
touches on the Grow bed. Next up --- getting the water flowing!
