Sample text

Plant selection and care: Most plants will work very well in an aquaponics type system, especially ones like tomatoes, spinach, and most green vegetables. The choice of plants to grow depends on the size of your system and how much experimentation you’re willing to try as to which plants/vegetables will grow best. Like any plants, even aquaponically grown plants can show deficiencies in some vitamins and minerals. It’s wise to add an organic, fish-friendly fertilizer, like a seaweed fertilizer, to your system every 2 weeks or so as you would a dirt garden to fix any signs of deficiencies.

Calf vaccination is also very important. You should consult your veterinarian to design a vaccination program that best fits your calves’ needs. Cows need to be milked every 12 hours. It’s best to do it early in the morning, before the cow goes to pasture, and at the end of the day. If you skip a milking or are late, the cow will be in pain. Before milking, clean your bucket with warm, soapy water and wash your hands while you’re at it. Wash her udders and teats with warm water and a soft cloth.

Monitor how fast the water escapes as this will slow down after you add your grow medium (for example, fine gravel). Wash your grow medium and add it to the grow tub (make sure that you’re happy with the location because it gets extremely heavy and impossible to move). From here, you can simply drop seeds into the grow tub and cover lightly with the medium and wait for germination to occur. When you first put the seeds in, you will have doubts that the plants will even come up, but be patient. You will see plenty of little seedlings start to spring up.
