Progress with the Aquaponic System


 

Dave and the team at Crossover transplanted tomato seedlings into the aquaponic system this week. The system now has tilapia and vegetables growing productively. They have had their fair share of challenges to overcome, but the progress is encouraging. The images below represent the beginning stages of developing a rotation tomatoes, cabbage, and lettuce.  Hopefully, with continued thoughtful management, and some luck, food will be nearly continuously ready.  Awesome!
