Giveaway1How I love giveaways!  I always feel like a virtual Oprah shouting across the internet, “You get jewelry! You get a discount code!  Everybody gets a discount code!”  That’s right, my friends, you get free awesome stuff and I get to feel like Oprah Winfrey.  This is what’s known as a win-win.  Thank you, Signazon, for kicking off the weekend the right way!

We gave up.  Truly, that’s what happened in the spring of 2011, when we finally hauled a truck-load of cardboard boxes containing baby & child clothing, toys, lamps, books, bedsheets, and comforters to a shelter in west central Georgia.  We turned the bedrooms which were once lovingly decorated in anticipation of children into a guest room and an office.  We resigned ourselves to the idea that we would embrace a life with just the two of us and that it would be more than enough to fill our aching hearts.

  • IBC Aquaponics: Research & Resources : Razor Family Farms - […] Once we downloaded the IBC of Aquaponics PDF, we began searching for parts around Oahu.  The IBCs were found on Craigslist.org with relative ease and for $100-200 each.  Josh followed the directions and made a few slight adjustments (because the United States has yet to adopt the metric system and a few other reasons that we will get into in future posts).  We found growing media, sump, and tilapia at a really neat store in Waimanalo called The Aquaponics Place and the rest we found at Home Depot.  I highly recommend field research before setting up your backyard aquaponics system.  Seeing the aquaponics systems on display at the store helped us plan our garden and feed our growing excitement.  Check out pictures from our IBC aquaponics construction in this post: “DIY IBC Backyard Aquaponics.” […]ReplyCancel
