It is hard to imagine the simple pleasure of growing your own food in today’s busy world. We spend most of our day laboring at a job we don’t like and would rather just spend time with our families.
Because of the stressful lifestyles we lead, the concept of organic gardening seems unrealistic. Let me take a moment of your time to propose a new activity, that is nothing like gardening. It is a simple way of growing fruits and vegetables without a garden. This new idea is called aquaponics. You will not find a better way to put fresh food on your table.
With aquaponics, fish are grown in a holding tank and the same water in which the fish live is used to carry nutrients to your plants. The greatest thing about aquaponics is that your plants are nurtured by the bio-nutrients created by the fish.
The fish will need some daily TLC, but this is simple and easy since all you need to do is monitor the water and feed them. The plants actually clean the tank and filter the water so there is no need to drain and clean the tank.
There is a symbiotic relationship between the plants and the fish that mimics nature. Therefore, your time commitment will be reduced because the system is in harmony. You’ll still have plenty of time to spend with your family and other hobbies.
It only takes a few minutes a day to ensure the health of your fish and plants. I think you will find that it is so fun and easy, your entire family will enjoy taking care of the aquaponics system.
Don’t be afraid to start a new way to grow fresh food for your family. Aquaponics is simple and easy and your family will benefit from the healthy fish and vegetables.
