Gurobo Farm Update 5.30.14

And JAM! Look who got his update done. That’s right, this guy! Even though i did two hours on DDoCast today i was still able to knock it out. There are ducks at the end so look for that. Also i guess the final duck names have been chosen. I will have to get them all typed out from the boss. I don’t tell you wrong. Ideally the ducks could become fairly well trained and could follow some commands and that seems cool to me.

Anyway if you are in the market for eggs let me know the chickens must have stepped things up, because yesterday i had the boy get eggs in the afternoon and there was around 30 eggs in the coop and he claims to be bringing in eggs everyday. 30/Five hens equals a really busy group of ladies.

Anyway please enjoy.

Gurobo Farm Update: 5.16.14

I taped this on Friday morning. Turns out that i have zero idea what day of the month it is when not sitting at my computer.

Update Update….

Thanks to the wife’s prodding i ran out and bought a in tank heater and an extra filter and low and behold i had a lot less dead fish then i thought, thank goodness! Now if i can just keep what is alive that way things would be great!

Lots of Little Things, including Gurobo Farm Update 5.6.14

Right off the bat i want to say thanks for stopping by, i know that i my base is all over at the moment and that makes me fairly happy. Having so many people with so many different topics come here because i might entertain them for a moment is fairly cool.

Okay lets get into it.

1, DUCKS! Oh man if you missed the 30 sec link i tweet to them still in the shipping box don’t panic. First it is right here:

Second, i will be taking a longer video later and will have it up as soon as i can. I hope to run down the breeds and names i hope. Right now i like using our Grandparent’s names for the ducks but with 4 girls that might be hard.

2, Greenhouse, i have a new update processing right now over on youtube, what phones are shaky… Odds are it will be done later tonight so it might have to wait until tomorrow but if you don’t want to wait i am linking the shaky video below. I also did find and get two IBC totes, one of which Remmie and i busted hump and converted yesterday. It is not 100% ready for fish and plants yet but it is getting close.

3, Got to see Spiderman 2 yesterday. Really good but i also have a bit of a crush on Emma Stone. Yeah i know. I also have a thing for Dr. Girlfriend and Lana from Archer.

I plan to do a ring tone of this scene for CtH.

LESSAH!

Okay, i better check on things and tape more videos of the ducks. I mean how damn cute are they? Super damn fuck’n cute, i know.

In Light of Earth Day, Watch me Point at Things.

In light of Earth Day i am going to link a couple of videos that i made last Friday. I did tweet them so if you are a tweep and you already saw them then there is nothing new for you here. But if you haven’t seen them they are not bad.

The first one here is a little shaky but YouTube is “fixing” it as i write this so i hope that it wont be too bad for you soon.

Pre-Strawberries

Post-Strawberries.

Also the spinach has started to poke up in the purple bed and i did go ahead and fill the grey bed with peppers, yeah ghost Habanero. So much fiery goodness.

Gurobo Farm Update: 4.11.14

So i am not 100% sure how it happened, exactly…. But now we have a bunny. A super sweet Angora Bunny. Which naturally leads to the next to pictures of the boys (Remmie and one of his friends) dissimbling some rescued pallets from work so i could cobble together the last picture. Aka, rabbit run for nice days outside.

So bunny.

So bunny.

Yes my son is the one in red with the loooong hair and he is huge.

One Bunny Run

I hope it looks super rustic and cobbled together, because that was the look i was going for when building it. On the other hand i have gotten this (below Video) more or less ready.

Now i feel we are ready for the ducks to arrive in about a month. Might even put some fish in the duck pond for the summer. Not sure about that yet.

Stepping into the greenhouse lets do a tomato side-by-side.

I realize that the pick of the aquaponic plant isn’t so great but it was REALLY bright outside and i couldn’t see the screen on my phone… But it more or less looks like the ones in soil but bigger.

A head of Romaine we ate last week, placed in one of the dutch buckets. It is really taking off.

Trying to hang a cucumber this year. My hope is it will climb the fence and help shade everything else some when it gets HOT.

Swish chard is roaring back from its hard winter. So much so as it has been hot dog and brats buns for the last week or so. Along with a spinach and lettuce leaf. You can also see some of the straw berries plants, what you can’t see is that some of them are already fruiting.

2014-04-11 12.41.37

Grapes are waking up. The ones out side are still asleep.

Garlic – Top – first year to try them. So far so good. Ghost and Devil Peppers – bottom – also first year. Not sure how they are doing yet really.

Last big news is we added our first fruit tree. It is a 4 breed monster cherry tree, i can’t remember the different kinds but there are 2 early fruiters and 2 late fruiters. We hope is that it will fruit this year (it should even if there will not be a ton) but if not this year it should next year. This weekend we will be getting some of those stone rings and getting it mulched real good.  I added like 8 or 9 eggs to the soil around the tree. I read an article how eggs are great time realize fertilizer as well as good eats.  I am testing that out with some tomato plants in the greenhouse as well but i wanted to go ahead and get some in hear as well as i really want to make this happen for the wife. Speaking of the wife now that we have one fruit tree she is thinking she might want another for the backyard. And the is more talk in the house about getting a lemon tree for inside. Think i might have made some growing monsters. 🙂

The Cherry tree.

What are you doing this year garden wise? I know you have some room so don’t give me any grief on that one. Go plant something.

Gurobo Farm update Aug 8

Here is the video i took Thursday before heading on my weekend getaway with the wife. Youtube is “smoothing” the video out. Had my phone auto uploaded it to YouTube like i had the other one setup to do, I think you would have gotten this video last week.

Anyway this is a little video of things. The rosters are gone now and there is one less thing for the wife to have to deal with in her day to day life.

Well hope you enjoy.

Gurobo Farm Update 7/25/2013

Another Aquaponic picture update.

My Dutch bucket as of yesterday. 3 stems and flowering.

Same peppers planted 1, week earlier. Also have grown a ton in the last 2 weeks. But now they are about at the same place the DB pepper was at 2 weeks ago. Single stem no flowers yet.

The flood and drain bed. Ground Cherries are doing well 1 head of lettuce is going.

On Saturday/Sunday i decided to add in some Tomato seeds just to see how they would do and 3 days later they are up. I pulled one out to move it and its root was more then an inch long. Crazy.

Over all i am so impressed with the Aquaponic system, next year it will have at least one more flood and drain bed… some how. And i am thinking a few more Dutch Buckets… I thing we might go really soil less next year depending on how the everything winters.
