This blog is to be a few lines, every now and then, to describe my life. I am writing this blog to have a record of my life. I would love to read of the lives of my parents and grandparents. It is amazing how easily we can forget the dates and years when you don’t write a record. It is also my desire to respect others and follow the standards that are set out in the Bible for our benefit. This blog will not be a platform for my religious beliefs, and as one of Jehovah's Witnesses, it is not difficult for anyone to get this information. We will deliver it to your door, or you can find it at http://www.watchtower.org/ .
My barrelponics have been running trouble free for several weeks now. I have added a couple of gallons of water to it, and I feed the fish every day (except for a couple of days we were in Charleston, SC). So I think that it proves to be the most effective and waterwise way to grow veggies. I also think that you could make manure tea with cow, horse or other animal waste. This tea could be soaked in water and the water pumped directly into a grow bed the same way. This may not be as water wise as the fish. Perhaps that when the tea was diluted to a point that the it needed to be replaced, it would go to the landscape or regular garden as a soil builder. Anyway it is something to think about. I use these large tweesers to pick bugs off the plants. They are fish food suppliments.
