Backyard aquaponics: DIY system to farm fish with vegetables

De moestuin - zaaikalender - hoe en wanneer moet je zaaien in je moestuin Welke groenten, en wanneer kan je zaaien in de moestuin? Een moestuin hebben, is vandaag de dag heel normaal. Vroeger werd het altijd gezien als een hobby voor de ouderen. Maar steeds meer jongere mensen beginnen ook een moestuin. Je moet er rekening mee houden, dat je per 100m2 tuin die je hebt, ongeveer per week een uur tot anderhalf uur mee bezig bent. Wanneer moet je groenten zaaien? Het is logisch als je begint met een moestuin, dat je niet weet wanneer je wat moet zaaien en hoe je het moet zaaien. Zaaikalender voor de groententuin Nu staat hierboven een zaaikalender, die je misschien goed kan gebruiken. Ook is het belangrijk dat je het onkruid steeds verwijderd tussen je gezaaide plantjes, dit bevorderd de groei van je groenteplantjes.

hanging strawberries List of animal names Wikipedia list article For many animals, particularly domesticated ones, there are specific names for males, females, young, and groups. The best-known source of many English words used for collective groupings of animals is The Book of Saint Albans, an essay on hunting published in 1486 and attributed to Juliana Berners.[1] Most terms used here may be found in common dictionaries and general information web sites.[2][3][4] Generic terms[edit] Terms by species or taxon[edit] Usage of collective nouns[edit] Merriam-Webster writes that most terms of venery fell out of use in the 16th century, including a "murder" for crows. Writing for Audubon, Nicholas Lund says that many such terms are not used in actuality. See also[edit] Notes[edit] References[edit] Further reading[edit]

Lasagna Garden - How to Make a Lasagna Garden Lasagna gardening is a no-dig, no-till organic gardening method that results in rich, fluffy soil with very little work from the gardener. The name "lasagna gardening" has nothing to do with what you'll be growing in this garden. It refers to the method of building the garden, which is, essentially, adding layers of organic materials that will “cook down” over time, resulting in rich, fluffy soil that will help your plants thrive. Also known as “sheet composting,” lasagna gardening is great for the environment, because you're using your yard and kitchen waste and essentially composting it in place to make a new garden. No Digging Required One of the best things about lasagna gardening is how easy it is. Ingredients For A Lasagna Garden Anything you'd put in a compost pile, you can put into a lasagna garden. Just as with an edible lasagna, there is some importance to the methods you use to build your lasagna garden. When To Make A Lasagna Garden Planting and Maintaining a Lasagna Garden

Automated Chicken Coop Door If you had any doubts that SiliconFarmer has an actual farm, this project should dispel them. We got six chickens last year. I built them a nice coop. It sits about 100 feet from the house, and has wheels so we can occasionally move it. Chickens like to be in the coop at night. This means someone has to go out early in the morning to open the coop, or they get noisy and start pecking each other. Anyway, this gets old after a while. The first problem was deciding what sort of motor and mechanism to use. He also suggested using an arm and pulley mechanism so the motor could be run in just one direction to both open and close the door. These motors have an integrated switch, which allows my controller to determine when the motor is positioned with the door completely closed. The completely open position isn’t as critical. First thing I did was figure out which leads ran the motor, and which was the feedback switch. One lead is common, two leads are power for slow and fast speeds.

How To Easily Make A Beehive In A Jar DIY Project It seems everyone is interested in how to make your own beehive in a jar. Have the rows of organic honey jars at the farmers market got you thinking about starting your own backyard beehive? If you live in a suburban area, you may think that starting a beehive cannot be done. However a common suburban backyard can be a perfect place for beehives if done correctly and you do a bit of research and planning before ordering your bees and supplies. First get a piece of thick plywood and cut to 16″ x 20″. Next cut 2 – 22″ pieces from a 2″ x 12″ x 6′ board and 2 – 18″ pieces from a 2″ x 12″ x 6′ board. Get your 12 wide mouth mason 1/2 gallon size jars (or a normal quart sized jar). Here is the 12 beehive jars arranged and installed in our backyard beehive. Another view of our DIY backyard beehives in a jar project. The bees are seen here after we added them to the jars, they are now ready to make organic honey. After much time, here is what the honeycomb jars look like filled with honey.

TreeYo Permaculture Definition | A Permaculture Design Course Handbook One of the great things about Permaculture is that there is no set definition for Permaculture. This gives us the freedom to personalize Permaculture for our own journey within the realm of co-creating with the planet and our local communities. I encourage all my students to frame their own definition so they can begin to teach others about this philosophy and course of action. The definition is a bit wordy, I know, but it serves to try and shorten what I really believe is the reformation of culture. Through design work that patterns ecosystems, integration allows for more time in the shade-covered hammock because efficiency is created. These interconnections are made more efficient as we incorporate all life kingdoms into the cycles of life and death. By relying more heavily on perennial crops, like the starchy tuber Jerusalem Artichoke above, our overall agriculture becomes productive in a myriad of fashions that have a cascading affect.
