Progress!

Saturday I put in the DWC Raft and transferred the remaining seedlings into it. The lettuce seedlings in the garage had easily doubled in size since Wednesday, and the basil looked a lot sturdier. I also tidied up the deck a little.



In other news, this morning I fed the fish and checked on the plants only to discover... I have Corn! Five or six of the stalks popped through the gravel some time Sunday. I only planted these on Wednesday.. WOW! :D This farming thing is kind of cool. If you click on the picture you can see the sprouts running down the center of the gravel growbed.



We went to the Farmer's Market sunday as well, and I picked up a blackberry vine and blueberry bush. Those are probably safe from the aquaponics bug for now, but I might take a cutting or two or ten next year. ;)

My water is obscenely green, and I haven't seen any fish since I put them in. :( I _have_ to get some shade on the tank ASAP. My son's b-day party is this weekend and I'd like to have the water clear(er) by then, but that probably won't happen.

That's all for now,
Fishfarmer Ellie
