I admit that it's enjoyable to look up from my desk and see green growing over the top of the aquaponic bed. I am considering other options for something to grow in the front left corner of the bed beside the hose that carries the water in (it's buried under the gravel to prevent it falling out or splashing). I wonder if strawberries can be grown aquaponically from seed.
Of course as soon as I posted that winter sowing season is arriving, the forecast now shows several days above freezing. I'll have more time to plan out what to plant, but less time to get it planted as I won't be able to set out containers until it remains well under freezing. It wouldn't work well for a seed to mistakenly sprout thinking it's spring during a freak warm spell in January/February.
