Finally planted some seeds

So it's been a little over 7 or 8 months since we decided to build an aquaponics system and after many months of work, we were finally able to plant the top row of growbeds yesterday!

seeds (organic and non gmo of course)

added an overflow to the fish tank.

washing hydroton... about a hundred times easier than washing gravel.

beds filled with hydroton

middle bed seeds - thai basil, onions, lettuce, carrots, squash
