Indoor Ikea farming

After the gardening post yesterday I thought about ways to pull off indoor farming.  I don't know that this will work for my space so consider it concept art for the moment, but here you go.  I found this on Ikea hacker the other day and Loyal reader A Beer for the Shower might appreciate this as an upgrade to his "drug dealer style" garden.  As a plus side it also has an aquaculture feature for some slow delivery of fish.  What is the maturation rate on fish any way?  Don't most species take a few years to yield anything useful in terms of Biomass?



So for the people that have read deep into the archives of this old ass blog, or just noticed the tag feature know that I've written about this type of thing before.  This particular post happens to be somewhat practical in the sense that it was designed around objects that exist in the real world and implements principles that are actually on display at Disney World.  It is in a boring section of Epcot, and clearly a sign that the hippies where accidentally allowed into the workforce some how evading the extensive counter-counter culture hippy genocide that must have happened to explain the 80's.  I'm surprise I haven't seen more literature on what must have been quite the feat of quiet genocide here in the US for all of the chanting hippies to have disappeared almost overnight near the end of the 70's.  My current theory is the CIA created a huge (like 1 million gallons or so) batch of tainted lsd and Quaaludes and some how distributed it across the country all on the same week or so miraculously killing all of the hippies.

I kid of course, but seriously think about. ;)

  6. I do very much appreciate this, and once I start getting some more money together, this is actually the exact system I want to go to! I've only read about this type of system, but never seen a picture of it.

    And I think you're right about how long it takes. I've always heard this system described as a very easy way to have fish and plants sustain each other. It's less work, and eventually you can eat both. However, I've never heard of this as, "you can eat one meal a day!" That just doesn't seem realistic unless you have 10 of these things cluttering up your house for a long time.

  7. CIA is all-powerful. If they wanted hippies dead, they'd be dead. :D
