I've been playing with aquaponics for a couple years. I get lettuce, tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers and chives from my aquaponics bed. This last year weather has been the big ugly, unseasonably damp and cool. I started seedlings indoors and two days after transferring them to my outdoor bed we had pea sized hail which hammered everything flat.
My goal is to give the weather the finger (BOTH hands) and switch to indoor aquaponics for growing salad greens, tomatoes, peppers and cucumbers for as much of the year as I can. To do that, some of the growing will have to be done vertically.
Very cool! I love the idea of aquaponics, there just seems to be so many possibilities for water purification, food-growing, indoor environment improvement.

We don't do things very fast, but what we do we really enjoy. It's taken Wadly a while to understand we really do have to be more self-sufficient. Now that the sun porch roof is up and we have a plan for disassembling EPS foam to get what we need to mix eps-crete for the north wall, things might progress just a little more quickly.
