Codman Delivery!

Alex and I braved the beginning of Winter Storm Nemo to deliver the 90 gallon fish tank and all of our locally sourced items to Codman Academy on Friday. While we were there, Lisa showed us the announcement and student interest board - looks like we have a lot of folks ready to learn about aquaponics!

The PC design's the Codman System

Here's a diagram of the system we're building with the Codman Academy next weekend!

Out with a bang!

So the pepper that we rescued from the first fall frost has been on life support in our window aquaponics unit for several months - typically fruiting plants are the hardest to grow in 'young' aqua ponics systems. This morning I found our pepper exhausted and dried out in the grow bed - apparently it expended all of its energy delivering a single green pepper!
