Today I got an e-mail from Sylvia Bernstein with pictures of me and Murray at the conference.
Did I mention how excited I was to meet Murray? Squee!!
I love how Murray makes aquaponics seem like the most natural, fun, productive thing in the world. And he's a lot like my grandfather, a down-to-earth person. And Murray has this fabulous Australian accent. I love how he pronounces pH "p-Haitch," for example.
I loved getting to explain "my" aquaponics system and greenhouse to Murray, before he conducted the fund-raising auction.
What's Up Next???
Now that I've gotten some sleep back in me, I recall the next thing I really wanted to post about was how to finish off the greenhouse, since I wasn't able to do that to my satisfaction in the single hour I had at the conference. Luckily, I could really use a shed, so I can show off the basic technique without having to build an entire greenhouse.
After that, I'm planning to build a solar heater, a home-made version of the basic "Cansolair" unit, demonstrated in the video below:
We'll get to 365 days a year of growing season yet...
