Just a quick note , I pulled all the radishes in one of the tubs. They were getting ready to bolt . Some were not forming a round radish but I did get a small bowl full. The tub also has New Zealand  spinach , that is supposed to do well in the heat. This will give them more sunlight, so they should start to do better. Here are the pix from the radishes.

Well it is not much but our weather here has been up and down, and got real warm real fast.


Growing going on here!!!!!!!!!!

Well it has been a while since I have posted here….sorry. I have been busy getting the garden and greenhouse going. I have added some bluegills that I caught down at the river. Also you can see that everything is really growing well. I do believe this Aquaponics thang works.


Well it looks like we might have a ghost here after all………………


Had to add this one to show the difference between the last picture in the post before this.

Well that is how things are going. Will try to update more often.

Did You Think I Died?

No didn’t die but damn close. I got a case of the flu and a stomach bug all at once. No I didn’t get the flu shot wont get on that soap box though. Any way got over most of that and then my mother went back in for surgery and started PT . Today was the first day that I felt like or was able to get out into the green house.

So out I went with my seed packs and got everything started I waned too.I have not added the Blue gill yet . Decided to get more plants growing in the grow beds first. My water test today were perfect so what I have right now is a good balance. I will add the blue gill once my plants are in the grow beds . When there is a need for more nutrients.

So here are the photos from today .
