Welcome to another Monday Musings, where we share interesting links as well as updates on the blog and preps.
First the blog updates…
I am working on a new round of reviews and projects that I will be posting about soon.
One of the projects I had hoped to get going hasn’t worked out just yet, the Back to the Roots AquaFarm which I mentioned last fall I originally purchased it to try an aquaponics project indoors, but found out during the set up that we don’t have a good spot for it. I didn’t realize this before buying it, but found out later, that it cannot be near any bedrooms because the pump generates a steady noise. At the same time, it needs a sunny spot to work properly. I’m not saying it doesn’t work – we just don’t have the right space for it. Back to the patio garden!
