Aquaponic Highlights!

Remember that ESPN Sportcenter quote: “You can’t stop him, you can only hope to contain him!?!?”… well that also applies to Scott’s backyard aquaponic system in Northeast DC.

Last year we were impressed when Scott told us that during the warm months he grew a SALAD PER DAY for his entire family of 5.

The pic to the right shows his harvest for just one day last week… “EXCEPT for the bigger tomato I already ate.”

And below are media-growbeds with zucchinis, tomatoes, and peppers. Scott keeps fish in his sump tank year round (thermal insulation), and in the warmer months links up his second fish tank, seen here to the back right. Everything you see growing here is from one aquaponic system!  Here’s a link to his forum thread in case you are interested in more info: Scott’s aquaponic forum thread.
