A New Beginning

After the fish dying off, I took a break. It was nice in a way to not think about any plants or fish, especially after the less than successful spring/summer and fish catastrophe. However, I had a great system sitting there, doing nothing…

I was too late to start seeds for the fall season, but I was in Home Depot the other week and saw Romaine Lettuce and iceburg lettuce seedlings, and thought, “It’s now or never!” They also had broccoli and cauliflower, so I got some of those as well. I cleared out the remaining plants in the growbeds (okra was still alive and kicking!), and began anew.

Yesterday, I went to Danbury Fish Farms and got 25 new 6-8″ blue catfish, just as before – they seemed to stand the near freezing weather just fine, so are a decent choice, I’d say. Maybe this time next year I’ll get to cook some. Today, little Nat and I got some more lettuce and some swiss chard to replace where a squirrel or something ate one of the broccoli plant leaves. Here it is – hope we fare well this season!

Chives and garlic chives hold over from last season, having grown all year.  I like to munch on them.  Lettuces and brussel sprout seedlings sitting in netpots.  My mom always said she hated brussel sprouts, so I have never had them.  We'll see!
