Aquaponics Oyster Farming Algae Energy Production & You

The vast majority of people love wild seafood that’s harvested from its natural environment, but are you aware a large percentage of sea food these days comes from enormous farming activities? Shrimp, Fish & Oyster farming has changed over the years to the extent producers can breed and harvest domesticated animals they grow from farming activities using algae.

Algae vegetation is usually an unwanted site in most ponds. Thick mats of wavy green algae strands is often unsightly, but...

Although aquaponics (the simplest definition being "the symbiotic cultivation of plants and aquatic animals in a recirculating environment") has been around in various forms for thousands of years, GreenHouse Aquaponics contain proprietary ways to produce yields that fall well within established production parameters for existing aquaponics systems, but with a much more stable system requirin...

Aquaponics ...
Why we need aquaponics is a serious question, indeed.  Many countries in the world suffer from hunger … the land may not be fertile or they may not have enough of it ... sometimes it is simply a lack of education.  In any event, aquaponics may turn out to be the single most important factor in feeding the world.

In reality, right here in the United States, many people worry about our food sources. Think about all the genetically modified plants and vegetables … not to mention the quality of the soil and the purity of the water used to grow the “store” bought produce that we line up to buy.  This doesn’t even scratch the surface when you start to think about our source of fresh fish!  Can you say BP oil spill?

20 Families Uprooted from Suburbia for Inner-City Urban Farming (Video)

We've seen inspiring footage of urban farming in Detroit helping families survive, not to mention Growing Power's awesome urban aquaponics and vermiculture project. I've just come across another crew of crazy ambitious, idealistic urban farming advocates—and these guys claim to be setting their sights on feeding the world. From aquaponics to worm composting to biogas production, they are aiming big—and they are going to be filming their progress for us all to learn from.

 NOW FROM THE GENERAL FARMING FILES
Experts offer 10 tips to growing great onions.

National Garden Bureau member Dixondale Farms recently featured some terrific onion growing tips in their newsletter. The NGB thought the tips were so good, the organization asked to share, and here they are. So, if you are growing onions, here are some tips for getting the best crop possible, straight from the onion-growing experts:

Free, Homemade Liquid Fertilizers

Make these easy liquid fertilizers — then sit back and watch your seedlings and plants thrive!

Homemade liquid fertilizers made from free, natural ingredients — such as grass clippings, seaweed, chicken manure and human urine — can give your plants the quick boost of nutrients they need to grow stronger and be more productive.

Many organic gardeners keep a bottle of liquid fish fertilizer on hand to feed young seedlings, plants growing in containers and any garden crop that needs a nutrient boost. But liquid, fish-based fertilizers are often pricey, plus we’re supporting an unsustainable fishing industry by buying them. So, what’s a good alternative?

All About Growing Spinach

The most nutritious leafy green grown in most gardens — super-cold-hardy spinach — is a top crop for fall, winter and spring.
From savoyed to smooth-leaved, spinach varieties vary greatly in texture and shade. Color ranges from dark to light green.

Spinach varieties vary in the size, shape and texture of the leaves.

Savoyed and semi-savoyed types have dark green leaves — that are puckered or crinkled — and become especially crisp in cold weather. Many of the best varieties for growing through winter have savoyed leaves.

GROWING TOMATOES
The exquisite flavor and irresistible juiciness of homegrown tomatoes put them at or near the top of most gardeners’ planting lists. Fruit size, color and flavor differ with each variety, but all tomatoes grow best under warm conditions. For the best flavor, provide fertile, organically enriched soil with a pH between 6.0 and 6.5, and plant your tomatoes in a site that gets plenty of sun.
