I am obsessed with any normal plant thriving in water alone.
I think it is absolutely enthralling.
Maybe its the chance to watch the roots grow.
Or maybe it is the fact that our aquatic transplants are growing better then their earth-bound friends.
Awesome Sweet Corn…
Incredible Sweet Corn…
We originally left our broccoli plant to return to the earth.
But he stayed green long enough we have decided to see if it’s possible to save him.
So far so good…
You can see the hairs of roots beginning.
It was just a sad rootless stalk before this fish tank transfer.
I really like the idea of growing plants from clippings.
So I tried with a number of plants at the house but the only one I put in water was the Sweet Mint that has now take root.

Yesterday was an eventful day for the house.
A lot of creative energy buzzing and swirling about.
I don’t have the largest garden budget and love to venture beyond the typical use of soil.
Dustin, being the innovative engineer he is, created our first models of the aquaponics creations we have now scatter around the house.
The long root is the sweet corn Dustin placed in.
The Ballon Mollys think I’m feeding them.
The left one, Jabba the Hut, is prego.
I got so excited I made Dustin create a floater for some Sweet Mint.
Then when you wander outside…
More seedlings galore!
Tonto standing guard.
Used a restaurant size Balsamic Dressing jug, a bath squishy and styrofoam to float.
My first one is a Pond Pumpkin.
They say pumpkins need a lot of water…

Good Morning fellow plant lovers!
This is today’s beautiful discovery that I could not wait to share with you.
I have been trying out all the ways I have read online for growing seeds. I truly prefer to reuse products that we would normally toss even though they are reusable and recyclable. So far, my favorite is this simple and easy method …
Swiss Rolls and Sweet Corn. Two of my favorite things.
I of course create a source of drainage with a few holes and a number of small fish tank pebbles along the bottom. I do not use the colored fish tank pebbles because warm water causes the color to flake off.
