Stock Tank Aquaponics, Grow Bed Construction

Stock Tank Aquaponics grow bed.

This bed is 6’x3′ by ~ 10″ tall. It is constructed with 3- 4×4’s 1 sheet of plywood & 8 – 2×4’s. I go through the process of building the base, walls & show each step along the way.

At the end I finished with putting a drain hole in one end of the bed which will have the bell siphon.

This build took about 2 hours, getting interrupted of course, next step is to put in the pond liner, cut out the spot for the drain & attach all of the fittings.

Compost Worms

June Garden Tour | Farming Seattle

This video shows a quick tour of Farming Seattle. I am located in North Burien, where I sell plants and compost worms.

The video shows a wide variety of plants that I am currently developing. Elderberry, thornless blackberry, apples, plum, peach, blueberry, strawberry, raspberry, rosemary, mulberry, and more.

I have a quick tour of the greenhouse, currently growing a ton of black elderberry plants (Sambucus Nigra). These plants produce a small berry great for syrup, eating, pies, and wine!.

Finally, in the backyard I show the bunny who loves to eat all of the dandelions 🙂 and my softwood propagation bed. Enjoy!

How to raise ducks in your backyard, start to finish

These two videos is almost an hour and a half of raising ducks from a few days old until 6 months old. I go through everything from having a water container to keep the brooder cleaner to building a duck coop outside using hardware cloth and tarps. Through it all, I really enjoyed raising ducks, although they are really, really loud!! In the future I will probably raise some Muscovy ducks which make no sounds. If you want to order the same products I used in this video, see the links below.
