Aquaponics appeal

Now that we have 50 jade perch fingerlings in the tank, the veggies have really taken off.  Prior to their arrival, we were adding seasol to keep the plants going but they have really sprung up now they have fish waste to work with.  And the fish have doubled in size in the last four weeks as well.  We have been told that when a system is new, leafy greens are the best crop - and they were right

So its wonderful fresh salads for us and a few lettuce leaves for the little girls as their run is just next to these garden beds.
