Signs of growth

Just a quick update on Barrelponics.  The plants are starting to grow more rapidly, and the goldfish are doing well. I have added more plants, and they took right off.  I think that this is a sign that the bacteria in the grow bed is changing the ammonia in the fish waste into nitrates that the plants can use.  Now we will see if the goldfish do as well as the plants seem to be doing.  I added some yellow squash, a couple of eggplants, and several sweet basil plants.
