About: I purchased a 5 tier unit last year to use for my kitchen herb garden on the balcony and this image shows just the self-seeded herbs coming back this year as I have not planted it again yet. My future goal is that I would love to convert this unit to aquaculture as I have just set up a beautiful old ball and claw bath as a waterlily fishpond and would like to experiment with setting up this tier for hydroponics and syphoning the fish water through on a regular basis with a solar pump. If this works well then I’d like to expand to more tiers on the balcony for strawberries etc.
I love growing food for my family and although I have very little time for home gardening it keeps me sane in these crazy times and it brings me so much joy to be able to pop out on the balcony to pick some herbs, spring onions or a lemon for the salad dressing. My balcony gets a lot of sun and is right outside the kitchen so an ideal place for this experiment. If I was lucky enough to win I’d be over-the-moon excited to get this aquaponic experiment rolling!
