There is a huge different between the veggies grown by others and myself... Like my dad used to say, his durian is the best in the area... It is purely chapperlang...

Life can be:
...as simple as you want it to be; (well! it is just a meal)
...as complicated as it can be...(if you went thru our experience in growing those veggies)
Anyway, whatever it is...just try to have fun!!!
My favorite in the growbed, the cabbage. Looks like will have to wait for another 50 days for harvest.
It is time for us to stop working on the aquaponics system for now (of course have to keep growing) but focus more on improving our infra especially on power supply/sources. We have now additional solar panels, higher capacity power inverter and charge controller to be in placed to make the system more flexible and efficient.
Higher cost involved when comes to green power or environmental friendly...sometimes it is just a 'joke' of "from the left pocket to the right pocket" kinda thing but then, "A man got to do what a man got to do.. " ;)
...not to forget to mention that, there are tilapias and jade perch ready for consumption but i dont think we are in favor to have them on dining table as we are staying next to the coast where freshwater fishes are not our favorite...
Rain gutters, observed a slower growing rate for the setup. We have now 130 pots in the system and still in experimental stage. Maybe just need to wait for more bacteria to kick in...currently, we have amaranth greens, warer spinach, kai lan and spinach also not to forget the additional 'fish food'... For speeding up the growth and balance up the life cycle in the gutter, small fishes are added into the equation.

Alright. All up and running!
This is what we are testing on....Let's see the results and will surely share our experience and hope that, more people will join growing healthy veggies.
If in the future, when we tell you that we are selling veggies; we are actually selling the veggies we are eating.

99% done and risk assessment is on going...and yes, a bit untidy now will do another round of fine tuning later.

Found them stick together ... stick together..stick together...the twins organic cherry tomatoes.
Was working on the relocation until late night yesterday... now we are having a new setup; however, the old and new growbeds are still apart. Will slowly clean up the old growbed and then the relocation. .stay tune.

Managed to install these four light-weight floodlights to lighten up our sky farm/garden [or whatever you wanna call it]. ; )
Don't think we are going to light them up daily but when there is a power outage, they should be ON.
Alright, have found what we wanted. It is about time to combine all the growbeds and the fish tanks. have confidence that after all done, things will turn out great... (Yes, currently it's still not yet in the optimum stage.)
Seriously, need to mention again, the plants grow real fast if you have the right siphon reactions for a flood and flush system. ( of course, that's why it is called flood and flush. ; )
However, for the new combined setting, we might trying out some method. Stay tuned!

While waiting for the combination of the whole aquaponics system, now we re focusing on the lighting..the floodlights needed to be in place so that we would be able to have activitis on the roof. Life is not about doing but savoring what you have done too. ;)
The whole floodlight system will be purely powered by the solar-wind system.
