Something Fishy Going On
Its been a busy couple of weeks and the sun continues to shine.
Bank Holiday week end saw us take delivery of something special
The aquaponic tank was getting a delivery of fish
Water test was done and everything was perfect for our arrivals.
we still had some resident crayfish in the tank and goldfish were there, the tank was ready to go.
Our new arrivals, Unable to get the trout we settled on Tilapia fingerlings, not the best of photos but they are only small and very fast so its difficult to get a proper photo of them, a week on and there is a difference in there size already, all being well by Autumn we should have them at table size.
The growing bed has exploded into growth
A few carnivorous plants have been added to help with pest control.
Another bit of fishy news
Martin has been away this week end with his boat on a diving trip to N.Wales
He got home last night with some additions
And some brown crabs that they had already cooked but were left over from there lunch.
It was always part of the plan Martin would use his boat to supplement our diet.
Foraging at its best.
When we were viewing smallholdings we specifically wanted to be within easy traveling of the sea.
It looks like Lobster is on the menu for tonights dinner, the crabs will be cooked and the meat frozen for future meals.
