It’s a sustainable, non-chemical way to kill existing weeds and pests. In a couple of weeks we’ll roll it back, lightly till the ground to raise up buried weed seeds, then recover. In a month or so we’ll have a nice stale seedbed ready for a cover crop for winter. September 18, 2019 Loading up one of the aquaponics beds with basil, cilantro and celery. What’s aquaponics? It’s hydroponics (growing plants in water), but instead of adding liquid plant nutrients, the water runs through another tank that contains fish. It’s a symbiotic sustainable relationship. The fish output provides the nutrients the plants need, and the plants clean the water for the fish. Works great! March 28, 2019 Taking a break. Need some water. Apparently Sofia (the cat) felt the same way.
