Aquaponics, Day Five

Leaves on the sprouts!

This is pretty cool.

And easy for me.

And this is why I wonder why I bother to plant a garden at all.  As soon as the tomatoes are ripening, the chickens are getting in there and eating them.  They don't even have the decency to eat the whole thing, fill up on one, then leave the rest alone.  They just ruin all of them.  At least in the aquaponics garden, the chickens won't be able to easily reach the produce.

Sounds like you need to stop your 'free range' chickens for a few days while the tomatos rippen

Our chickens have been penned up ever since I planted the garden. I don't like keeping them penned up because we have to feed them and I don't feel like that's the healthiest thing for them. So, for the past month, we've been letting them out at around 4:00 and they range until dark.
