Yesterday you saw the giant salad box at EcoGro and today I want to post the showroom's centerpiece - the aquaponic pools. Highest pool contains fish whose waste breaks down into beneficial nitrates for the plants (in the 2nd tier). Third tier is additional filtering for the water. Growing in the rock bin the store had peppers, basil, and more. And no weeding! For more info on this green hobby, click here.
I'm a transplanted New Yorker who loves the Tucson climate. On New Year's Day I have a bit of fun calling my (snowbound) east coast friends to announce that I'm drinking coffee while sitting on my patio. (:
