devilsbard I'm going to show you some #seeds. This is a #swisschard #seed. I'm trying to grow these in our #aquafarm #aquaponic #aquarium and in our #garden out front. We'll see how it goes, I've never had luck growing it before. 2d

devilsbard Hello little #snail friend. Came across this guy on the trail while my daughter and I were #hiking today in the #pqcanyon. #sandiego #IgersSanDiego #pq #ranchopeñasquitos #fatherdaughtertime #qualitytime #california #california_igers #hike 7d
  •   sd_pinoy You're just a couple of miles away from me! 6d
  •   devilsbard Yup @sd_pinoy we went and visited a few friends up there too. The PQ preserve is always fun. 6d

devilsbard Got a new addition to our #garden, taking us indoors. Got this on Amazon during a lightning deal thing, let's see how it work. This is an indoor #aquaponic #aquarium by #backtotheroots. My daughter's #betta fish, lava, needed a better home and I wanted to be able to grow something indoors during the "winter". I say "winter" because #sandiego's version of that season is extremely mild. Music by the always awesome FIFTEEN. #aquafarm #gardening #aquaponics #indoorgarden #IgersSanDiego 1w
  •   hyenahyena These are very inappropriate for bettas. They need a heater, filter, and the fact that it's covered means the water will not have enough oxygen, nor will the betta be able to gulp air from the surface. 1w
  •   devilsbard @hyenahyena thank you for your concern. First the water stays well oxygenated because the water that is pumped into the grow area falls back into the water bringing bubbles and oxygen back into the water. It is covered, but there is an inch or so of space between the water and the "cover". As for the filter: the bacteria in the water and grow area convert the fish waste into food for the plants that will soon be growing in the water. As for the heater: I live in San Diego. So the temp inside our house is almost always temperate. Also, I'm fairly sure Betta evolved to live in pretty crappy water, hence why they have the ability to drink air so they're pretty damn tough. I suggest you read up on aquaponics and this system in particular. It's really interesting. 1w
  •   brendaortiz129 Can't wait to see it when it's got herbs growing...very cool 1w
  •   hyenahyena You should honestly look up betta fish myths...there are a ton of misconceptions you just mentioned. 1.bettas need about80 degree water, they are tropical..no temperate . 2. They do not live in crappy water..they live in wide open rice patties in Thailand and other areas and it is not why they developed a labyrinth breathing system. I have read about that system, the plants do not do all the work. Plus without a cycled tank you have not grown the proper bacteria up to eat up the high ammonia levels that are going to build up. You should read up on the nitrogen cycles in fish tanks. Just trying to help. It does not matter if there is an inch or two under the cover..it does not work that way for long periods of time. 1w
  •   devilsbard @hyenahyena rice patties are not known for their fresh clean water. It's typically very dirty water. And again, thank you for your concern, I have a larger scale aquaponic setup (55 gallons where we are currently raising tilapia) so we have some experience with nitrogen cycles. We've also had this Betta for 2.5 years living in a filter less 1 gallon tank. So this is a big positive change for Lava. 1w

devilsbard Got an awesome #Xmas present from my wife. A #gopro #hero. I think she really got it for me because I talked about lowering her camera into a mine shaft to see what's down there and she wasn't having that. Already planning some cool stuff with this. #timelspse 2w

devilsbard It's my annual Black Friday food and lounge fest. I cook up food and veg out watching movies all day. This year I'm making all #spicy food and watching #marvel movies. #turkey injected and brushed with #buffalowildwings #blazin hot sauce, sprinkled with #aleppo and #urfabiber #pepper flakes, and #smoked for 4 hours, before being finished in the oven. Also spicy #potatoes #augratin, and spicy #greenbeancasserole. 3w

  •   sd_pinoy Looks sweet?? 4w
  •   devilsbard Thank you @bklyntoct and @sd_pinoy it is pretty good but I think we might try a different variety next year. These watermelons were enormous and took up too much space in the our fridge once we cut them. 4w
  •   sd_pinoy Stick one in a crate while on the vine so it grows square. That'd be cool! 4w

devilsbard Well I wanted to do a #timelapse of my drive into work, but unfortunately the #lapseit app paused the recording a couple minutes in. Though that could be my fault for using #ducttape to secure my phone to the car. Because I am tired of #facebook blocking my videos with music for copyright reasons, I will be using music from my old band in my time lapse videos. Because we own the copyright of those songs. @xdrmadnessx #modela #ratrod 1mon

devilsbard My #aquaponic #sweetapplepepper #plants. They're growing pretty well, just hope this warm weather sticks around long enough to get some #peppers off of it. Guess there are some benefits to #globalwarming. No such thing as winter in #sandiego anymore. #growsomethinggreen #growfood #foodnotlawns #igers #IgersSanDiego #homemade #gardening #garden #california #california_igers #benefitsofglobalwarming #aquaponics #applepeppers 1mon

devilsbard A little experiment at work. One of our transportation carriers brought in a bucket of apples. So I put it next to the leftover Halloween candy bucket to see which is empty first. #bucketofapples #mainfreight #candy #Halloweencandy #experiment 2mon
