The big news this month is that we finally harvested a couple tilapia! We’ve been waiting a year and a half for this day. It’s been a fun learning experience growing produce in our aquaponics system. But, the thing I’ve been most looking forward to is getting to eat a fish.
It seems a little strange that it’s already the end of August and we haven’t done much preserving of our our garden harvests. We didn’t plant a ton of zucchini this year. So, we have enough to eat, but not a never ending supply. Other squash and cucumbers are the same way. I had hoped to can salsa and marinara, but we didn’t have much
Our aquaponics system appears to be in good shape. The plants are growing well and look good. The fish are growing and we haven’t had any floaters. The nitrite and ammonia levels are at 0, so the biological filter is working well. Since installing a larger pump last month the water clarity has improved. All is well, at the moment.
