Because of improvements in our seed choices, planting methods and technology, our farm is exploding with fresh food after only 40 days. The 400 tilapia fish in this system know our voices and ‘frenzy’ when we walk into the farm (a good sign because a happy fish eats well and POOPS A LOT and that’s the fertilizer for our plants). In case you didn’t know it, the Aquaponists’ Daily Prayer is, “PRAY FOR POOP.”

BEFORE: Gravel Grow Trays in a Portable Farms® Aquaponics System with Colle Davis, Inventor, Portable Farms® Aquaponics Systems before planting

AFTER: 40 Days After Planting with Colle Davis, Inventor, Portable Farms® Aquaponics Systems. Many green leafy organic vegetables are already READY TO HARVEST and other blooming plants already have blossoms and are ready to produce organic fruit or vegetables after only 40 days (such as tomatoes, peppers, green beans, zucchini, and cucumbers). Portable Farms grow enormous amounts of healthy, organic, nutritious food in small spaces.

One single leaf of an organic zucchini plant measured after 40 days of growth in Gravel Grow Tray = 10.5 inches wide

Height of the same organic zucchini plant (above) after 40 days growth in a Gravel Grow Tray = 20.5 inches tall

Organic India Mustard plant (a spicy lettuce) after 40 days in the Gravel Grow Trays = 19 inches tall

Organic Cos Romaine Lettuce after 40 days of growth in a Gravel Grow Tray = 12.5 inches tall

We’re growing a variety of organic seeds in each of these categories in this farm:

  • Basil
  • Swiss Chard
  • Kale
  • Cucumbers
  • Mustard Greens (what we call Wasabi Lettuce – hot hot hot)
  • Dozens of varieties of Lettuce
  • Peppers
  • Tomatoes
  • India Mustard
  • Long Green Beans
  • Dozens of varieties of Asian greens
  • Boc Choi
  • A variety of herbs

    My daughter told me that you were not supposed to eat fish that are bottom feeders what should i tell her. I have 100 acres of land and she has 50 acres i am going to put me a system in.need help to convenience her to do also.

    1. Billy,

      Ask your daughter to show you the science based research that she is using to support her opinion on about the fish. Tilapia are not bottom feeders anyway and catfish, carp, suckers and other ‘bottom-feeding’ fish have been consumed for centuries and are highly recommended for eating. Young modern fussy eaters have some very strange ideas about life. Read Antifragile by N. Taleb to get better idea of the stupidity of modernity.

      We look forward to welcoming you as a student.
