Dude, catfish is the bomb.  Seriously.  And just paint the styrene foam floats for lettuce.  Whatever she wants, pink=done, purple=done, green...well just wait for the algae to set in. :)


Are you home for this whole season?


Do the tanks not get too hot?

Here is what it looks like now...will keep you posted. I'll try to sneak a raft or two in there...gotta secure the purchase of this house first! May just keep the pond looking pondish with aquatic plants though. I sure hope the tanks don't get too hot. They are under a lattice porch. 

 

Everything moving along nicely here...

Here is how the setup looks right now...

Seems to be working!?!?! They sure are looking good! One of the best fringe benefits is I change out 5 gallons of water every couple days and use that water on the in-ground gardens and for my compost tea as I mentioned above.

My inground plants will be in a new spot this year...I have been composting here for several years. I hope they like it.

Thanks Choco!!!

 

 

Looking great Shane. Love the hydro.

Thanks Jeff! I'm beginning to love it to for sure.

Thank you Scott...I'll need plenty of well wishes!

Sucks...gotta take what is given where you live I suppose ;) The pool is not open for business yet, but could be soon. 

 

 

So...the weather is just about perfect here today! I took advantage and got some of my in-ground plants off and running. Last frost in Poway 19 March, but the nights are still pretty cool. 45 degrees when I got up this morning. I have a short trip coming up next week, so I needed to get some on autopilot before I left.

Some are pretty small...but they should be ok. I have extras for each of these and many more that will have to wait a bit longer to get outside. 

Three day weekend for me!!!  Hope you guys are doing well!

Well...I always intend to keep up, but it just doesn't work. Bought the house we've been renting for years and went straight into renovation...so super busy. The work schedule has been nuts too. OK enough of the dog ate my homework crap...the previous post was when my plants went in the ground...here they are now.

First year growing in this spot...they seem to like it. They are up over 6' got the most part.

My aquaponic system continues to impress...nothing but fish water feeding this plant. 

 

Two variants of the BBG7 X PDN from Romy6:

First of the Devil's Brains (Romy6) ripening...these pods look scary.

Thanks for checking in!

Good to here from you Shane.

Congrats on the home.

Plants look amazing. That aquaponic system looks fantastic. Just fish water is pretty cool.

I like the second variation of the BBG7 X PDN.

Won't be long before things start looking more colorful in the garden.

Welcome back.

Hi Shane! I was out of touch until late March and I'm just now stumbling across your glog. Boy, you've been busy! Lots to learn here, and no surprise that your crop is looking stellar! Now that I've found your glog, I'll be following. Cheers!

Love the growth of those big plants! Nice. And congrats on owning your home!

The primos look great. Very cool.

And what is that P. Onore? Looks like a Pubescens, right? Have you tried any yet?
Righteous heat!
