While I was there I took the chance to give you a bit of a look at the ripening coffee cherry & a few points of interest on the “Aquaponics”.

    Great video Rob. Getting the job done properly, as always. With timers and permanent bed outlet, cleaning the roots is an external job for me – just twist off the outlet, pull the entire root mass out with one hand in one go, and reattach the outlet. Also, varying the timer length allows you to limit the time the beds spend submerged. At higher latitudes that can really make a difference in winter and can be less demanding on energy.

    hi Rob, just to let you know a local concreter's trick, : you can sprinkle wet wood chips over concrete to make it cure slower and not crack.

    thank you rob I just learnt something. I didn't know fruit of coffee was edible (might be something to do with being a southerner too far south for coffee plants to survive winter.

    I have to say I love these renovation updates. I think it is coming along great and as someone who is still just renting and wishing I had a house of my own I can kind of live vicariously through you.

    looking good. Are they going to cut any stress cracks in the concrete? You don't have frost to worry about so we usually have to so the different areas can float without getting random cracks showing up.

    Like to know more about your coffee plant and what you do to keep it going. I have very small coffee plant made it through its second year.. not doing great . Could use your advice. Ty

  • I actually like the period of no fish. It gives ideas of different ways to keep the system going when life happens and for some reason you can't have fish.

  • Jason Seekoei 9 months ago

    basically a jungle now haha

  • swbg80 swbg8 9 months ago

    when building a system how do you gage the size of sump (gallon/liters) to the size of the fish tanks?

  • pompom's corner 9 months ago

    I was really inspired by your videos. I even started my own small system 2 months ago! (here I have my humble aquaponics system)

  • Neil Calliou 9 months ago

    Holy crap man, you got your own private jungle Haha! That tomatoe plant is crazy! I would love to try all that , looks so healthy.

  • As always, Its looking fantastic. And you not even looking after it full time. LOL you certainly have a greenthumb. looking forward to seeing it when its completely done over.

    Tomotos look great!
    I'm in Gippsland Vic, all my seedlings keep getting frost bitten.
    Just started making a system from 3 barrels,AGAIN!

  • Everything looks healthy and strong! Random question but what kind of netting would you recomend to keep Caterpillar off of my herb garden, i dont want to cut out any of the light but need something to shield from the moths.

    Hi, love your videos. Just wondering where to look for hoan ngoc, live in Queensland? Should I buy seed or cutting? Been wondering for a while how to spell the name, could not until you did this video, thanks.

    Wow, just wow! Your garden has gone feral. That root in your flow pipe, I've never seen anything quite like it. It's amazing how nature takes off with a little neglect. Really looking forward to seeing how you renovate your garden now. Fun times. : )

    Thank you for the bonus clip, I look forward to your system restart. I have officially started my 8×12 ap greenhouse. When you get settled in to your house I could use your advise on a 3 tray nft system and a small growbed. Cheers!

    Finally just got the option to join YouTube channels in South Africa, as soon as I have a bit of extra cash I will definitely be joining your channel to help support you and the awesome content you make. Loved the added extra clip for all of us that stick around to the end every video. Cant wait for the rebuild quite exciting for me personally because I'm in the process of slowly building my own system purely based off of what you have taught me.

    Thanks a lot for your content it's always refreshing and full of knowledge.
