Ah F&F - you never cease to amaze me, the wife saw your "strawberry patch", now I've gotta incorporate something similar - this is good tho, one of her friends works at a demo yard and I have been given "visitor rights" at mate's rates (I'll send her down to scrounge and see what hidden talents she has) :headbang:

Steady on F&F, that's no way to speak about the missus, although she is quite adept at wielding a rolling pin on the odd occasion :lol:

Hey Les, did you see the picture of F&F's shed? Now THAT is a proper shed! A shed that anyone would be PROUD to have!
Well done F&F, I like your shed! :D

Sorry I missed your milestone Les, I was cleaning a fishtank that the children thought would be a good idea to fill with potting mix. Fortunately it's a tank for them to play with their plastic fish in, not real ones. :fish:

today I visited the Malaysia Agriculture, Horticulture & Agrotourism show (MAHA). The company i'm working is currently involve in some sort of hydroponic venture and they produce this type of hydroponic system called the autopot and smart valve system. The roof on my office has a greenhouse which houses all this hydroponic plants.

Basically what the smartvalve system does is that plants are being grown in a grow bed using hydroponic method, the water to the plants are controlled via the smart valve. The smart valve will sense(mechanically) the water intake of the plant and supply it with optimum nutrient rich water. They have successfully planted melons, chillis, paddy (rice), ladies finger and etc. some of the media used are pieces of bricks, perlite and clay pellet. Is this type of method considered DWC ?

chilli plant

some of the melons are being grown in a box to make it look square for estatic purpose.

closeup of square melon
Image

rice (paddy) - this is natural since paddy plants grows mostly in fields fill with water
Image

this is a type of bean we called ladies finger (is it the same over in australia)
Image
Other highlight of the show,

giant jack fruit
Image

are these the type of fish of fish you guys called barra?
Image

tilapia
Image

giant m'sian fresh water prawn (though smaller than your yabbies)

pipes use to house aquaculture fish

rest of the photos are here. most of the small thumbnail are clickable.

Great pictures.

The 'Lady's Fingers' look like 'okra' to me. Plants between 1 and 2 meters, light fuzz and/or stickers on the stems and leaves, pods contain round white seeds and are filled with slime. We use it in soups called gumbo to thicken them. Also, we roll them in cornmeal and fry them. That's the best!

We have fresh water crayfish like your prawns/yabbies, but smaller ,I think.
