Aquaponics – humble harvest today

Ridge gourd and long beans, two of the most well suited creepers in aquaponics. Grown in constant flood gravel grow media and Tilapia fish.

Harvest today – Slowly back on track

Aquaponics – New batch of plants

Since the last growbed cleanup, next batch of crops are growing up fairly well.

I have cucumber, tomato, long beans, ridge gourd and mint planted. This system has fewer fish, about fourteen. Twelve out of them were born and brought up in the farm (Babies in the fish tank) 🙂 I need to add more fish into this tank soon.


In the new smaller growbed that I posted last time, things are not looking as good. It has one long beans and one cumber planted. Cucumber is looking good but long beans plant isn’t looking very healthy. I think this growbed needs a bit more gravel in it. In certain areas of the growbed I can almost see water at the top. I need to research this a little further on this growbed. Hmmm…
