have Spelt wheat in the new bed (guess which one that is) we put about a dosen grains in it to begin with just to see what it would do, when they reached about 3 inches i sowed it like i would in the ground and they are germinating well, theres barley in the other side of it but seems to sprout and die (just can't get anything good from a supermarket these days)

the pics of the yard are a few weeks old but the ones of the aquaponics are from this morning.
There are 3 or 4 cucumbers on the one in the aquaponics and a few more in the ground, we let one of our cos go to seed 6 months ago and are now finding it in the front yard aswell as everywhere else

we built the house and are on about 2M of fill which makes the whole gardening thing a bit fun, lots of sheep, cow,etc. to give the ground some nutrients.

the silver thingo is actually a 4 way tap adaptor feeding the 3 blue barrels and the wooden pillar box (made from leftover floorboards lined with builders plastic, never again!)

the black box with the orange float is a stock trough auto filler that i have tapped into the retic, makes for hoseless filling YAY :thumbright:

the barrels drain through a standpipe into a 40mm adaptor down to a 25mm poly pipe for the return (wanted to be able to move them if i see a need).

Maybe have a search on the forum about brass.

As the water becomes slightly acidic it will start corroding the brass and accumulating in your fishes flesh. Or so the story goes.
