Another weekend has passed us by but we again made progress on a couple of the projects we wanted to get completed.
To start with we have created a flow through vermacomposter (worm farm) that we have up and running now. The video is of the build. Although not highly detailed, it will at least give people an idea on what we did to create our setup if they want to copy it.
Although we have only had it set up for a short time, I can already tell you that I am loving this unit! I cant wait to see it producing tonnes of worms and compost in the years to come!
We also started working on yet another wicking bed for the front yard. This bed we did not get completed up as we hoped, but it is coming together and we should have it up and planted shortly. I have hopes of getting it done up this week if the weather allows me.
The hope for this one is to have it for sunchokes and mosquito repelling flowers among other things.
I cant wait to see the yard when everything is ready to harvest!
The other wicking beds are all showing signs of plant life popping up. Donna even tells me that she has some spinach coming up, but I know she transplanted something else in the bed to sprout seeing as she cant grow spinach.
The greenhouse is going crazy with cucumbers and spaghetti squash but the bell peppers and tomatoes will not be far behind with the number of flowers and buds coming out on them.
We are still in the process of cleaning up two of the growbeds and getting them set up better with non-central return drains. I have hopes that we will get this completed up next weekend with dome dedicated time.
We again had some lengthy travelers come to the meet up with Barney and Family coming from Edmonton to get fish and Sean coming from Rocky Mountain House that came to the Face to Face meeting. We had several folks from the Face to Face come over to check things out after the meeting was over.
Over all it was a great event and awesome conversation.
It seems there still needs to be some dialogue and over the Aquaponic Society and how that will/will not be established. We will see how that all lays out in the weeks to come.
For now, here is the Video Update:
Reminder that the Aquaponic Course with Build Component is in two weeks. This is your last chance to sign up and get in on the life changing course!
