Farmer of veggies, now turned fish farmer, Justin, checking on his aquaponics experiment.
He spent a good 5 minutes or so floating the net back and forth as he called, “Here fishy, fishy!” Boy, those guys are fast! I stood by, armed with a camera, and slightly amused with the whole thing. However, I did get rather impatient at about 2 minutes (must be some form of ADD) and wandered about the garden because there are just so many pretty things to look at there!
I was taking some closeups of the insides of squash blossoms when I hear Justin yell, “I got some!” I yell back ,”Ok, Ok, I’m coming!” I race over, dodging hanging tromboncino squashes (btw, these guys are selling like hot cakes at our front porch farm stand ) trying to not step on any bees (as I was bare foot) that are crawling around and made it just in time to snap these photos before they (the fish) got away.
Still too little for a fish fry but they are getting there. Oh, and unlike the other critters here on the urban homestead, these guys don’t have names.
What new critters on your [urban] homestead this year?
