Aquaponics Grow Bed Framed

I framed up the grow bed this week and set it in place to get an idea of how I want to mount it.   First thing I noticed is that it seems much bigger than it did on the drawing.   There is lots of garden space and I expect good production out of such a large area.  That said, it is a little close on the sides for getting around.
Yet to do:

  • Sheet the bottom of the grow bed
  • line the pond
  • line the grow bed
  • mount grow bed
  • install plumbing & electrical


It’s hard to get a sense of the size from the picture, but the grow bed is 10′ x 4.5′ and will sit atop of the fish pond which is 5’x4′.    The front portion of the pond will have a slatted lid which should make a nice bench to sit on while out there.    In the upper left you can see I’ve run my electrical providing a utility outlet and switch for the pump.


The required picture of the Chicks.  Here they are enjoying a plum and butternut squash.  They are almost 15 weeks now.  We are hoping they will start laying around the end of August / first of September.
