gardening with fish... [Jun. 23rd, 2012|11:03 pm]
Verminius Rex
Went to Maker's Fair in KC today, one of the booths had this interesting setup with a fish tank at the bottom (with tilapia) and recirculated the water for hydroponics on top. You can harvest both the fish and the veggies, and I think they grew the food for the fish too. Would be fun to play with if i had the space and we lacked that thing called winter. 

I ordered a few fingerling potatoes but won't overdo it for the rest of the season on the potato front. I don't know how well potatoes started during the hottest part of summer will grow and I don't want to waste a bunch on seed potatoes, so I got some fingerling seed potatoes on order that should be good enough to play with in the empty space from the yukon golds. Next year I'll definitely plant more varieties and do deeper beds. 

Very tired from walking around so much today.
