This week was full of "stuff", partly getting into a new rhythm of living in a partly-retired state. One of the highlights of this week was attending an aquaponics class at Fort Valley State University. I got to the class to find out the fee for the class had been waived. In this week's post I am adding pictures of what is possible in even small tanks. The FVSU program grows using aquarium size up to small pool size grow tanks and they have raised all kinds of food through the loop aquaponics systems. Off and on rainy weather has been the forecast for many of the days! I have great neighbors also. I returned home on one day to find a solar shower, blue barrel, canopy, tiki torch fuel and a gas can with fuel! This week also brought 4 great and hard working visitors to the farm for a weekend stay. We accomplished tree stump digging and flower box planting. One of my younger helpers helped build a planter box and we sifted soil preparing it for seeds. I also was taught by the 4 year old how to properly make smores and we sat up til late at night enjoying the rewards of sweet treats and a full moon on the emerging courtyard! With the planter boxes dry we were able to add them to the new cabin. The decks are still an ongoing task and chainsaw maintenance is too. It was great having visitors over the weekend and Tuesday became my rest day...almost. I had some brushed bronze rustoleum paint so the wind chimes got a new coat of paint. Enjoy the pictures...for some reason they uploaded in reverse order....oh well!
