Just a quick update to keep you all informed because I am sure that you are just hanging out to know what is happening :-).

Everything is growing really well, I think we have seen a transition from struggling to succeeding. This means that the fish are growing and their output is increasing.

Below are the broccoli seedlings.


The tomato seedlings that were surviving are now booming ahead and there are three of them.


We continue to pick off the green spinach and it just keeps coming back. ┬áThe picking seems to be doing it good.DSC_1567The Patchoi seedlings are really starting to take shape and it won’t be long and we will be picking and enjoying them also.

We picked our first beetroot from the system and it looks just great.


Friends of ours bought a banana plant and when we saw it we thought it was such a great idea. We didn’t think bananas grew this far south. Our friends ordered us a couple and we have put them into pots in the hothouse next to the aquaponics system.

I will keep you updated.



You may find me linked up at some of these great blogs.

  1. Why yes, some of us ARE just hanging out waiting. Looks lovely. They make “cold hardy” bananas that will actually grow here. Maybe you got one of those?

    1. Hey there Deborah, yes we may have, but I’m not sure. We didn’t know that you could grow them down here and they don’t like the frosts. Hopefully we will be able to keep our warms in the hot house. Blessings
