Aquaponics & Garden
In 2012 I pulled out the mini aquaponic experimental system and we built this above the pond in its place. The 'spillway' was created using a metal dustpan I trimmed with tin snips. The gravel bed creates a biological filter and the water stays super clean and clear. In 2013 this will become a fully functioning ebb-and-flow system. I ate my last radish from this bed in November 2012. The system did not produce a ton of food, but not a bad season for our first try at aquaponics!
