Inspired by members of Empire Avenue, I learned about Aquaponics. This week my mom saw something about it on television so I figured, why not make one my own.
Now I must admit that the technique involved scares me off a bit. I prefer just gardening in the sand and the idea that plants grow on fish tanks seems like rocket science to me. But there seem to be great resources on Youtube so why not go ahead with it and make it real this year.
- Step one. Planning a place to set up an Aquaponic system.
I have thought about building a greenhouse in my garden for some time. I think the best way to start is using plastic as a cover. Not so organic but affordable. These are called Polytunnels.
The little piece of garden at the back of our long garden is perfect for a Polytunnel because it is surrounded by trees and will not catch too much wind. I only hope that there won’t fall any branches on it.
Great instruction for making a poly tunnel
