Aquaponic nitrogen consumption
My aquaponics experiment
is a slippery slope. I started out with easy
herbs transplanted out of the garden (plus a few daffodils
for color), and all they needed was the tiniest of fluorescent lights
overhead. But as the ammonia got converted to nitrite and the nitrite
to nitrate, I realize the error of my ways --- herbs aren't hungry
enough to use up all of the nitrogen in my tank.
So I've added some
greedier plants, starting these from seed because I don't have any
heavy feeders in the garden at the moment. Cucumbers and summer squash,
plus some basil and parsley to round out my herbs.
