Two favorite class- Aquaponics & Olericulture.

Hey everyone- I finally finished studying/homework for my two favorite classes- Aquaponics and Olericulture
imageFor my aquaponic class- I was able to built my own mini system thanks to Cool Professor Mike.  We just finished week 7 of classes. And so far my coleus is doing great and My baby heirloom purple Cherokee tomato plant 😀 Its growing really fast compare to the one I planted in soil. I loveee aquaponics. I got 6 platies fish (live bearers) and one plecostomus( an algae eater)

Here’s a couple of  red wriggler cocoons- I was able to see one come out of its cocoons while I observed it under the microscope-  Soo cool!!!!

For my olericulture class- I learned how to make soil blocks- Super easy to make and very affordable.

A couple weeks ago, My partners and I had to built our own coldframe. It took about 4hrs to create. (We never worked with tools) We planted different cool weather seeds (radish, lettuce and turnips) on the soil blocks. Once the seedling grew- we had to transplanted the soil blocks to the coldframe.

Hi everyone name is Cecilia and, I'm 24 years old. I'm passionate about plants and gardening. At the age of 16, I was bitten by the gardening bugs, thanks to my grandma and my sweet lovable mama. I plan to share my hopes, dreams, fears, and daily happenings in my life. When the days are nice. I enjoy going on road trips and especially go on hikes. I'm just recently graduate from college and I was able to get my degree in Horticulture- Small Market Farming. Now I'm working on getting my IT innovation Degree at UNOmaha. My dream is to one day possess my own land out in the country, but near the city. Where I can be surrounded by peace and filled with inspiration with a little mix of technology. If you have any questions, feel free to email me :))
