Farm Update | Tilapia Release | DutchBucket and DWC update

The Red Nile Tilapia were released from their mini-home to the whole tank. Some were too small on arrival and would have gone through the pick up tube into the media bed to their demise. No kamikaze’s here…all made it safe and sound!

Lettuces are growing like crazy in the DWC, but it’s starting to get hot. We’ll see how well they do in the coming weeks. Hit 92 already this week!Lettuce growing at GreenView Aquaponics Family Farm and Apiary in Cape Coral FL Lettuce growing at GreenView Aquaponics Family Farm and Apiary in Cape Coral FL Lettuce growing at GreenView Aquaponics Family Farm and Apiary in Cape Coral FL

Wheat Grass and the microgreens are doing great. The Cucumbers in the Dutch Buckets are having a flower fest with tiny cukes forming every few inches.

Chickens still growing and check out those feathers! Btw…the chick’s not really that red (even though it’s a Rhode Island Red) that’s just the glow from the heat lamp to make it look like a pschydelic bird.  Gave them a roost last week and they have all figured it out, but only 10 of the 12 fit up there…Heat lamp goes off this week.  Americauna Chick at GreenView Aquaponics Family Farm and Apiary in Cape Coral FL Rhode Island Red Chick at GreenView Aquaponics Family Farm and Apiary in Cape Coral FL The flock of Chicks at GreenView Aquaponics Family Farm and Apiary in Cape Coral FL
