An Aquaponics Update

 The peas have grown quite a bit in a week, but we have noted they are turning quite yellow at the top.  Don't know what that is about, but thinking we will have to do some research.  They started out in pots with some dirt, and we rinsed the roots off to plant them.

 This is a lima bean that came up from seed in the bed.  So far he looks quite happy.  This was planted Sunday.

 The seed starting rack has a decided GREEN cast to it! :)  Lots of plants going great guns in there...

Including these that have had to be removed from the rack because they wanted to climb on everything!!

 The plants on the right are scarlet runner beans, and some sort of melon is on the left.

This is the first bed we sowed seeds directly into.  It has chard, cabbage, carrots, three kinds of onions, broccoli and zucchini. The dark green leaf on the left is the first of the three zucchini seeds we planted.

Nice! So will these be transplanted to an outdoor garden when it gets warmer?

Looks like you're having great success! Good luck!

That's super awesome. I've seen displays of aquaponics at Disney World, but had never thought about trying it myself. (Too many little hands around to sabotage it.)

I stopped in to see if you were going to be participating in the A to Z Challenge this year, and there's your badge up on top. Yay! I'm so excited.

Whoo-hoo! Just saw your blog listed on the A to Z challenge. Maybe I'll keep up with you now. Glad to see you :-)
