Expanded Aquaponics Garden and Plants

Expanded Aquaponic Garden (2)

 

We decided to expand the aquaponics garden by adding 50 feet of 4 inch pipe along the outside wall of our carport. Mac has cut holes so we can place cups with plants.

 

 

 

We have 36 strawberry plants: 6 Loran, 20 Sequoia, and 10 Ozark Beauties. We didn’t know which ones we would like so that’s why we got 3 different kinds. We also got a 6 pack of asparagus roots and 1 cherry tomato plant.Strawberry_Loran 2-29-16

Seeds in Cheesecloth 2-29-16

 

Since we bought seeds Mac thinks that placing them in cheesecloth and then in a cup with an opening to the water will get them started. Time will tell. The seeds include Red Russian Kale, Rainbow Chard, spinach and green onions.

 

 

 

We have herbs planted in an old refrigerator on the back deck where rosemary is seeding out and basil took over last year. We’re assuming the basil will come back.

Stuvia 2-29-16
Mint 2-29-16We purchased 3 herb plants: dill, stuvia, and mint; to go in this planter. We will also be planting cilantro seeds with these other herbs.

 

 

 

 

 

Now we wait to see how everything grows and how long it takes for them to start producing fruit or the seeds to get roots and become a real plant.
