11:30 am arrival
People: Green City Initiative and friends
Weather: Hot and sunny with medium winds.
Status: Today was the official open house for our aquaponics system. We had SMU students and staff present as well as members of the Cochran Church. We explained the system and showed off our plump, little fishies to everyone, while they dined on homemade spaghetti and cookies.
Fish Corner: While showing off the system, opportunity came knocking in the form of a large June bug crawling on the plant raft. Capturing the bug, we attempted to feed it to the fish in a Roman style display of gladiator versus lion for our guests. The “lions” outnumbered the bug 20 to 1, but only nibbled at it a couple times before giving up the fight. As is custom, the June bug was set free and crawled off into the sunset victorious.
