Yeppers, that right had 3 babies Guniea.

I had no Idea when they were due. Because Janie snitched them from a broody Hen. There are still 3 more eggs in the incubator. Maybe they hatch. If all of these make it. We will have double her Guniea Population, Plus whatever the Hen was able to hatch. There were 11 eggs still under her.

 

Now to the 20-gallon Aquaponics set up.

I managed to get it planted out at 7am Wednesday morning. I’ll admit it I’m a little wasteful with the seeds. But, have a look at it 26 hours later.

There are lettuce seed and Mustard greens. Oh did you notice the excellent spacing of the plants? Yea, I guess, I need to work on that.

I just love how fast thing progress in an Aquaponics system. My inside systems seem to produce so much faster than the one I have in the garage. I know it is because of more stable and cooler temperatures in the summer as well as warmer temperatures winter in the house.

I planted a grow bed in my 175-Gallon system in the garage 9 days ago. Here it’s progress.20160616_092923

I left the garage door open to air things out a bit and while I was mowing the back yard a sparrow found my grow bed and invited about 15 of his buddies to join him in a buffet of my salad greens.

Really I can’t complain. Things grow so much faster than being planted in the ground. Best of all I don’t have to crawl around on the ground to grow my fast growing annuals. I can’t grow too many, I have rabbits, birds, and fish that like to eat them.

Well, I’m sure something needs my attention. So I’ll close this post now. Be safe people.
