I just plant stuff. It is usually later that I read the back of the packet. :shock: Darn that might have problems growing in winter.

I had tomatoes in the middle of winter.

Excellent ...

Great resource for my High School Students! 8) 8) 8)

BTW . after a long slog, lots of begging, borrowing etc. etc.

starting with a couple of wheelie bin systems which have eventually developed into a three bed AP system, large pond with a few Barramundi, (BYAP growbeds).

An aquaculture AP set up is up and running where I teach, along with a whole heap of aquariums donated by a member of the Perth Cichlid Society.

My vision is happening. ... be it a little slow! It is looking good!

I thank people who have donated their time, expertise and advice, aquariums, pumps, fish and fish keeping equipment to this project that will help our kids learn about the science behind fish keeping, AP, environmentalism and sustainability.

Thanks Joel for discounting the last growbed that the year 8's saved up for! It allowed us to finish one loop.

I am looking forward to a little epansion by the year end and will keep you posted.

Regards to all,



Johnnie!

I think those kids are lucky to have you. I never had many good teachers or programs.

I am planning on teaching an 6 or 9 week aquaponics short course for the local home school students on weekends. Im trying to decide if I should include a barrelponics system with each student. Hands on building would be best. Perhaps I could design a small cheap "bubbler" system to save the cost of a pump. However, I find that the smaller the system the more unstable it is and harder to manage. The other option is to get them involved in maintaining my systems and building a floating raft system for me.

In an interest for people to learn about the moonphases
...and how important they are...IMHO only. :bigsmurf:
I would like those interested in the outcome to make a selection from the seeds above. :flower:

:D I would put forward the ones I feel will do well but this way :wink:
Once you have learnt it, it will become obvious... :roll:
... and so will other things that are important to our growth and well being :wink:
Like harvest :( why would you pick fruit before it was ripe :?: :roll:
... and then not, to retain the best seed :flower: and therefore not the best eating
as the energy is being sent to the fruit/seed etc...
when will either ocur :cyclopsani:
You can also forcast the ripening of a species... or at least the pinicle of value and then link you planting
to the sowing and harvest - sowing.
:oops: bit of a rant Soz

Well that proved not to plant out of sync.
Bugger all germination and what did has suffered from insects
and produced bugger all.
I won't do that again...
So what have you guys been planting?

Put some basil in today. And I've noticed some plants starting to come up. A few look like beans but not sure yet what the others are.:scratch: Could be some kinda cucumber. I also have some tomatoes. Still trying to force cauliflower down the chickens throats to make some more room. :lol: Artichoke has been a suprise with it producing after 6 months in AP when they say it takes 1.5 years in the soil. And they are a great host for good insects.
