Daily Prompt – Beyond the Pale

Water Garden 2

Back to the Roots – Aquafarm/Water Garden

In an effort to try my hand at all sorts of different methods of gardening (on a small scale), I’ve tried something completely new (to me) – though not out of my element. Amazon had a goldbox deal on Earth Day for the Back to the Roots Aquafarm/Water Garden. We’ve talked about trying aquaponics a while back, but didn’t really plan or commit to anything, so this seemed like a good way to dip our toes in the water, so to speak.

Found a nice home for my aquafarm on my craft table

It’s been a few days already and I’m happy to say my betta hasn’t died (yet) and the wheatgrass has started sprouting. The whole system is very low maintenance, but we’ll see in a few weeks what kind of yield we get from the seeds.

Water Garden - Betta

Male Veiltale Betta – Want to give it a week in my care before naming it.. just in case

Water Garden - Wheatgrass

Wheatgrass is sprouting!! this is just after 2 days.

Please pardon the terrible quality of the pictures. We were keeping it dark to keep the room cool.. we don’t have air conditioning and it’s been in the 90s!!

2 May 2015: When was the last time you did something completely new and out of your element? How was it? Will you do it again?
