Aquaponic Greenhouse 12/3/14

Lots growing on in here
Climbing up top, this is the first thing you see when you climb up to the canopy level

Canopy level

Panoramic views of canopy

Cilantro, Scallions, Chocolate mint, Lettuce/mirco greens, Epazote, Strawberries, Lemon Balm, Nasturtiums, Spearmint, Tomatoes, Parsley, Thyme, Watercress and Duckweed

Lettuce and Microgreens

Nasturtiums, Spearmint, Parsley, Lettuce and Tomatoes

Grow beds fully drained

Watercress, Algae, and duckweed

"Daphnia," Daf-nee-uh or commonly known as water fleas 
Daphnia under the scope

A bunch living in the deeper waters of the grow bed

Daphnia feeding on algae and plankton.. as far as I can see

When I find some critters growing in the beds I put them in the 10 gallon containers with a couple scoops of compost.  The water heats up quickly on the canopy level, so they have warm water and grow faster

Compost water heater, 100 deg F

Sifting the finished material

You can see the worms feed on the surface more than the bottom, lots of worm poop on top 12 inches
