I use straw... works great in all coops/pens.

composts fast and perfectly balances with chicken manure. I grew all my plants with that combination without adding any chems or fertilizers.

pretty smart with nutrients especially in states that are not legal. Here in Michigan it is legal and I do own a hydroponics store. I have kept quiet on that subject about that subject but could blown ur minds with pics. And knowledge. Everything I do is hydro no soil. It's like the comparison I think shubin said the old kinds were good but u can't keep up with the new kinds. I've done everything from fogponics, to hydroponics simple ebb n flow and even Dwc which is deep water culture and even recirculating deep water culture or even aeroponics. I've grown plants in water for well over ten years. Thought I would share. Lol. But for a garden good old manure works great. I like horse manure but don't have any horses. Lol

Wowwzers. sounds pretty awesome. I have only done outdoors the past 2 years, but the results were very impressive. Just started gathering indoor equip... starting with dwc bucket system.

 

Been playing around with aquaponics, but in a barley grass fodder setup. Might try full aquaponics outdoors if I can get equip to do so. Might try with some tomatoes first

 

send me PM with pics if you want.

Who's jealous?

V bottom black cups ice pops right out. Gray cups not so much. I use the tips of the T stakes to smash the ice or the toe of my boot
