Aquaponics update 28th March 2013

Picture 9c

The basic structure for my greenhouse is now complete though it still requires a concrete floor, windows (thinking of twin walled polycarbonate plastic), electrics and the plumbing of a 4000 liter water tank. Then I can start setting up the Aquaponics system delivered a few weeks ago.

Below is a series of photographs showing the erection of the greenhouse structure.

    So excited for you! Can’t wait to show these photos to my husband. When the kids leave the nest, we may have to look for some acreage. 🙂

    • The carport is 6 meters by 7 meters and will house a 2300 litre fish tank and 6 grow beds, so you don’t need a lot of ground. It is possible to have a balcony Aquaponics system which would provide quiet a lot of veggies for a small family.
      Hopefully the slab will be poured within the next one to two weeks and so I’ll be able to show you the full system set up.
      Thanks for following my adventure Angela.
