Hi Folks.
We're getting close to moving back home after some major renovations were carried out on our home.
To make life easier, I'd like to lessen the load for us to move and give you folks out there the chance at snapping up some Root Pouches with a whopping 20% discount.

The sale will end at 11:59 pm on Friday the 5th of July.
The store will then be closed for a few days while we move home and start to get settled back in.


PLEASE NOTE - Some sizes have limited quantities & once sold out will not be available until we open the store after the move.

We worked fairly late last night so didn't get a chance to finish this clip until this morning. Sorry there's no early preview for you 2nd tier members.  
Will try & knock the Aquaponics FAQ one this week & have that up early for you to suss out.
Cheers all.

It may be "Winter" here but the Yellow Currant tomatoes in the "aquaponics" are doing rather well indeed methinks. I have it's doing a tad too well as the roots from this & the galangal are starting to block up the drain pipe. 🤔

Finished the 1st coat on the weatherboards downstairs with Koo yesterday. Hope to give them a second today so we can hook into the upstairs over the weekend.
The Lads have also started to pop up the battens as well. 
Tiler should be in today & I'm hoping to do an update clip for YouTube in the morning. 👍 
Not sure I'll have much time to edit it over the weekend though.😉

Here's the one and only dragon fruit that formed on next doors plant form the two or so dozen flowers that bloomed. It's on our side of the fence so I believe that makes it ours. 😉👍 Cheers all.

SOLIDS FILTRATION IN AQUAPONICS https://www.bitsouttheback.com/solids-managment-in-aquaponics Hey folks. Was chatting to the folks in the hangout yesterday & realised I forgot to post a link to the most recent article posted to the website. This one runs through my thoughts on solids in backyard aquaponic systems & how we can manage them to our advantage. Am working on a "How Many Fish" post & a few other bits this week. Cheers all.

Well that wasn't supposed to happen. 🤣😕 The bitsouttheback.com domain transferred over to Wix faster than thought & is now up & running. https://www.bitsouttheback.com I didn't get change the Wordpress site domain over in time as I thought I had 5 days before the transfer went through but such is. Will sort that out next week.

Next job will be to install a proper store to the site to make purchasing a bit easier. Will have a short supporter clip posted in a tick. Cheers all.
