Growing your own crops is undeniably a demanding task even for those deeply in love with gardening. It certainly is a time intensive activity and it requires plenty of energy and dedication. Furthermore, a conventional garden requires fertile land which will sustain your crops. These are generally the main causes for which many people give up their desire to growing their own personal vegetables and switching to home grown organic food. What people dont generally know is that there is a method of growing organic food (pesticide and chemical free) in the comfort of your home. Yes, you read it perfectly: inside of your house.
This new type of farming is called aquaponics and is the simplest way to become a farmer! The great part is that you'll not only grow vegetables, but you will also grow fish, with the intention to offer your friends and family a diversified nutrition. It all starts fairly simple, with a plain tank filled with water wherein you place some fish. You can get for Tilapia, Chinese Catfish, Crappie, Bluegill or Koi, or whatever species of fish you are allowed to grow in your house. Put them in the water, take good care of them and in about a month position the seeds ensuring they can reach the water and get the nutrients from it. The plants will develop and begin growing using the nutrients offered by the fish. Meanwhile, the fish will enjoy a clean environment as the plants will act as "maids" to them, cleaning and refreshing their water each and every day.
As you can tell this type of farming does not require any type of land, fertilizers or harmful chemicals. Just set up the system and make sure that the water has got the normal PH so that the fish will live comfortably in there. Then, let nature follow its course!
You can grow almost everything you need in the aquaponic farming. Leafy greens, fruity plants and legumes can all be planted within the aquaponic farming. If you have a piece of land where you might cultivate ground-based plants (potatoes, carrots, asparagus, onions, garlic and so on) you can use this water to irrigate it and the results will be spectacular!
This symbiosis between fish and plants is the one which will save you lots of time as well as provides you with a way to take on this activity without compromising your social or professional life. Couple of moments each day will be sufficient for you to make sure that both your crops and your fish are alright! In fact, growing plants and fish with the aquaponic system is so simple that your entire family will be happy to help you with that. Since it involves no dirty hands, bending and digging in the ground, you can even let your little ones help you. It won't take long so that they won't get bored and you will get to enjoy moments with them.
Aquaponics is the easiest way through which you will have tasty, fresh and healthy vegetables on your table everyday. There is no need to be afraid. Its easy.
