    Hi Bob, I have just had a huge Leyland Cypress hedge taken down from around my property. I am going to give the bigger wood away for firewood. Can I use the smaller stuff for mulch ?

    Why is the melon covered with cloth?
    Because of pests?

  • Interesting! I heard somewhere that if a tree is "worried" that it might die it will put more of its energy reserves into fruiting to ensure its ultimate survival through seeds. Don't know if that's true, but it would explain why the Tahitian Lime holds onto its fruit better when it's neglected a bit, and why it feels there's no need to expend the effort to produce fruit when it's regularly well fed.

    Hi Rob,

    What i found, what works against bacterial, viral or fungal infections in an aguaponic system is this:
    chlorine dioxide gas dissolved in water.

    It is actually used in an other way to cure humans/animals in a way, the medical/pharmaceutical world doesn't really want anyone to know.

    You can find a lot on this subject if you search for MMS – CDS – Jim Humble.

    What it is:

    It is sodium chlorite mixed with a citric acid. This gives Chorine dioxide gas, this is pushed through water and the water takes it in.

    I used the water with the gas and poured it with the fish as they had a bacterial infecction going on. It took less then one day, the water cleared up and the fish started healing very rapidly. I hold gold fish, so not the strongest species, but they thrive !!!

    It is really cheap to make and works wonders. Also on humans ! 🙂

    cheers,

    Rene

    like your tour – get external drive store extra files & videos on and free up your disk and get rid of down loads clean your cookies extra space and you would be easier to edit videos

    Gidday Rob, temps have been radical, no doubt about that. Thanks for getting back to me on my video about the 28 spotted Lady Beetle.
    I have had to hold back sowing microgreens too, waiting for cooler temps this Autumn
    I hope it goes well at the docs next week for your back!
    Happy Gardening

    Nice plot round up… I have fruit envy watching your vids… our season here in the UK gonna start in about a month or two, just wish it was warm enough and long enough to grow something more exotic, videos are available if anyone's interested.

    Hey Rob
    Thanks for the walk around. We recently had tree work done as well. 5 poplars between 60' and 100' tall. Was fun watching the guys cut them down, writing the cheque…. not so much.
    Take care mate, stay hydrated
    Cheers from Canuckistan

    Great content, I think aquaponics is so interesting, thanks for the video. Btw I just started a new channel, that will be covering gardening, chicken for eggs/meat, hunting, woodworking, gun reviews/shooting, getting pigs this summer. Please come on over and subscribe. Thanks

    Great update as always Rob! Are you still planning on getting the chickens? I've heard that mushroom herb is high in Ca and would probably be a good self-harvest crop to plant for the 'chooks'? Cheers!
