In the first video I called them turnips but those are actually radishes. Oops!

I hit Finished too soon - *Blush* wondering if you are going to do an article or podcast including video on your aquaponics? That was really cool!

I guess I should. We have discussed the aquaponics here and there on the podcast but never in length. I'll do it in an upcoming show. Thumbs up

Great videos. I can't believe how fast stuff grows in the summer in the north. Things seem to grow more slowly here although they just keep going all year. I just ordered some Mexico Midget seeds, hope to grow them hydroponically.

Really nice videos! Thanks!

How will the young 'uns harvest the 'Mexico Midget' tomatoes? Ladders? I see they are indeterminate, so I assume they won't chop them down to harvest the tops.

While I'm thinking about it, I had a question about your two-person-shovel-based-weeding method. Wouldn't it be easier on your back with a long-handled shovel? Or is it helpful to have your eyes close to the weeds so you can avoid plants you don't want to chop down?

2 of the "young 'uns" are now "young adults", and only barely shorter than I am!
