Spring is here.

The Greenhouse is packed with plants in pots and in the dirt. A couple of mice made their way inside and jewed a few potato plants up, they met their demise.
Some of the strawberries made it through the winter some not. I have 6 left and they are already outside.
In the Wintergarden.
The Aquaponics system is doing great. My switch to garden plants, non eatables has worked great. The Wizard Red loves the fish water. I just stuck some branches into the pots and now I have to trim it back every two weeks. None of the usual pest likes this plant. Since the water in the tank is perfect, 7 Tilapia and 6 small Goldies, I think I will stick to it. Don't fix what ain't broke.
On top of it, the Wizard and Geraniums have killed of the Whiteflies and other pest, no food for them.

This years project the rock garden with the hot tub fish tank and a little water world with aquaponics.

Seriously, your greenhouse and Winter garden look fantastic!

The rock garden. Well, some of the plants have survived the winter, some not. Some replacement has to be done.
The 2 wicking beds have, filled with manure, produced plenty of washed out urine during the winter to fertilize the wintergarden and the greenhouse.
They are seeded and planted. Salads and spinach in one and 2 different kind of potatoes in the other one.
I cover them up as long as possible to prevent the moisture to evaporate.
I will built one more in the next weeks
As one can see from the hot tub shot, I have a real debris problem, which I have to solve. 2 more problems, shade for the summer and heat for the winter and all of it has to look nice. :D

I wonder why our spa to pond conversion doesn't get that much debris in it? One thing that is different is ours is up out of the ground by six on the high side of the hill and more on the low side of the ill. That must keep the Tumble weeds out too.Oh and I forgot to mention the pond was covered all Winter with two sliding glass door panels. :whistle:

Being in the ground, could be a reason for more debris. It is mostly oak leaves and pine needles. This year with hardly any snow the oak leaves stayed on the brush and the high winds of the last month have blown them off.
I probably have to put some netting over it

Yup, that may be the only way to deal with it. I see over on Koiphen forums some people use nets to keep birds out, but it seems to distract from the look of the feature. I also see some ponds with the netting on the water and that to me looks better. Do you have a bottom drain in there Gnoib?

No bottom drain. I had to remove all the drain and outlet stuff, because they were to brittle and leaking.
I plan to use a submersible pump in the bottom and than plumb to the grow beds. With a union, it will allow me to take everything out for cleaning and for repairs.
Netting on the water is a good idea.
But 2 things first, have to get power to the tub and I have to install a overflow. Even with the little snow and rain we had this winter, the tub filled 1/3.
The power line has to be good enough for a 1500 watts stock tank heater, floater with a cage, to prevent complete freezing in the winter. I am not really concerned about the power usage, because my net metering, produces so much excess power, around 3.5 mwh a year and the retail price has hit rock bottom, it is down to 4 cents. It used to be 11 cents

I didn't realize the power company can change the rates in their favor, but it figures
