It's been a few big days lately, family time with Father's Day, Jordan started her vlog (except it has been nearly a week since she asked to get on the camera) and trying to get the parts I need to start a basic aquaponics setup running.
I realise that my budget isn't going to let me build as quickly as I want, but I am planning on building a small system mainly using a trickle system for leafy greens, and incorporating a grow bed for trying different plants to see how they grow in this climate and in an aquaponics system. Looking reasonably to get up and going I would be looking at about another $150 to get the rest of the plumbing and grow media, as well as a few building materials.
I moved the plants around a little today, sorting them into their different categories being Vegetables, Chillies, Herbs and flowers, then the Mint collection got put on a pallet under the Lilly Pilly trees. Also started setting up the frame for the basis of the aquaponics build. It is going to need a bit of reinforcement and planning on trying to get some shadecloth over the top when I can afford it.
Added a few Photos to the site, showing the collection of established plants and a few seedlings so have a look on the 'Our Products' page (as well as my new black moor goldfish I got for Fathers Day).
Thanks everyone for your interest and support, have an awesome day and share your knowledge!
