    This is probably a weird question,? but won’t the rotting fish influence the taste of the potatoes?

    they were the first in america ,but in the bzynantine empire and italy they did? it also

  • mikeygeneral2 7 years ago

    Yup American Indians were the first people to do? it. It was actually started and a prayer to the gods to sacrfice a fish. But they always noticed that wherever they buried the fish, The veggies would grow like crazy there. So they did it throught theirs entire plantations and then grew enourmous fruits and vegitables. They one they while they were fishing for more fertilizer,They saw a boat on the horizon. And that’s about it……

  • MELISSA84008 7 years ago when they? grew maize/corn. i remember learning that from grade school 🙂

  • Michael Beaulieu 7 years ago

    This is what Indians did? to grow their crop.

    I have? that same feed tub and am growing duckweed in it to!

  • Jefferdaughter 7 years ago

    John, isnt duckweed edible? From clean water, of course. BTW, the phosporic acid & other chemicals in soda may be as much of a problem as the sugar? & HFCS. And fish emulsion is a bit more complicated than simply ‘ground up fish’ – but you probably know that. Enjoy the info & the inspiration!

  • anothaview 7 years ago

  • Clicklc1500 7 years ago

    nice video? John! Way to go! Jason Niu from waytobetterlife.blogspot

  • koolgrower 7 years ago

    Great video! Thanks for posting this? one. This is also the first time that I have known an inn that maintains an aquaponic system to grow food for their guests. Indeed, this is an eco-friendly destination where you do not only have more time to relax and unwind but also to eat the freshest and healthiest food.

  • paradisepilgrim 7 years ago

    you get ’em, brah. ?

  • StephieMcCarthy 7 years ago

    excellent? video, as usual!!

  • jwwm2 7 years ago

    I forgot to mention tat the bill is named SB510, the Food Safety Modernization Act of 2010. It is VERY bad news for any American that eats. ?

  • jwwm2 7 years ago

    This is coming up for a vote, people. It was passed through to stop debate, and now is coming up as a vote on the actual law. This is no time to sit on your thumbs. Call your senator’s office, and? express (politely) your opposition to this bastard of a law, which is really nothing more than a government power grab. It does NOTHING to ensure food safety. This law is about federal power, NOT food safety.

  • michellerobin1979 7 years ago

    Can I grab the? box from cost co if it isnt empty? hehehe
    Keep up the good work! Also the soda has alot of acid and it probably helps break down the food for the worms.
