I wish I could take credit for all the beautiful greenery you see before you, but I can't. Josh has been the mastermind behind all the veggies this year. I am just the official picture taker. Though I have to say I am very good at eating, cooking and watering them; oh and keeping Luke from destroying them. The year before we had Luke I was in charge of the garden but obviously things have changed. I am happy to admit the garden is in way more capable hands than mine. I didn't never knew that I married a farmer but I am sure glad I did!
Josh has been researching aquaponics and decided to take the plunge and make our own system. If you don't know what aquaponics are; simply put there is a little pool with fish in it. We circulate the nutrient filled water from the fish into a bed of water that has plants growing in it with only the roots in the water. Because the plants are getting constant water they grow much faster. It's pretty cool. Of course Josh could explain it a lot better than I can. He is the smart one.
For those of you that don't know, we live smack dab in the middle of a big city. This garden is like our little oasis. Josh and I love sitting out there in the morning and evening; looking out at all the greenness. There is something about green that is so soothing and relaxing. If you have ever wanted to have a garden but didn't think you could because you live in the city don't give up hope. All you need is a little plot of land, time, effort, a willingness to learn and maybe a few anxious little helpers.
Do you have a garden? If so please share the your link in the comments. I would love to see it!
If not are you planning on starting one in the future?
