The Tilapia thing just has not worked out for us. We can't keep them through the winter without breaking the bank (electric bills) and can't grow them fast enough through the summer. There is no market for catfish or bluegill. Next spring I'm going to try fathead minnows (fish bait). We live right in the heart of North Georgia Crappie and Bass country. I will also expand my worm operation. Oddly, my friends who run hatcheries say, minnows are the most profitable fish they grow. Hope you all are having a great summer so far.
Had a bad day at the office. chickens, turkeys, ducks and our two pigs, trampled the fence and got in the garden this morning. Looks like a bombing raid. It is ravaged. After building new fence, I spent the day assessing damage and salvaging what I could. Totally exhausted now. To tired to even work on my book. Just going to shower and go to bed.
Oh I agree Sam. I'm terrible at typing on my phone. Glad you're back up and running
Computer back. Yay!
Computer in shop. Phone not much fun for typing. Going to lurk mode for a few days.
I'm converting one of my old aquaponics systems into a flood and drain hydroponics unit. Should work well. The biggest task will be keeping the pH balance because the system is outside in the open and it does rain once in a while.
Finally got my first tomatoes of the season. Have had squash and cukes for a few weeks, but got my tomatoes out a bit late. So yummy. Why would anyone buy a supermarket tomato?
Big heatwave hit yesterday. It's going to be a dandy, because the humidity is so very high. Gotta take special care to ensure livestock have plenty of water and access to shade. What's it like where you are?
Just wanted to wish a Happy Fathers Day to all for whom it applies. For the rest of you, have an awesome Sunday.
Karen, good for you on the soap front.
Sorry about the chickens, though.
