Got the talapias in on March 23 and the got down to work immediately.

Talapias ( photo / image / picture from KK Ng's Garden )
These fellas are growing real fast, more than four times the size when I got them. I feed them with commercial fish pellets and lettuce leaf once in a while. Still looking for duck weeds inactively anyway they are keeping the tank real clean from algae.

First Batch ( photo / image / picture from KK Ng's Garden )
These are the first batch of seedlings which is what Marlingardener would call "Orphans Plants" except for the one on the far right corner which is a lettuce. I wanted to start with lettuce but I only got a single seedling from the 20 seeds that I germinated.

I hate waiting, don't you? As a matter of fact from what I had read, I am suppose to wait like 2 or 3 months to let the bacteria grow to produce the necessary nutrients but I couldn't wait. Now is to watch how this first batch of veggies is going to grow. I have four more beds ...... maybe I'll start more seeds tomorrow!!!

The seedlings look great KK. I will be nice to follow their progress as they mature. More seeds? Why not, go for it.

It'sd nice to see some green progress there, KK.
Why KK--I had no idea that you were such an impatient fellow. haha.

Good luck with those plants now...keep us posted with pics and commentary.

Hi Jerry, I'll be doing just that and if the seeds are cooperative, all the beds should be occupied by early May.

Hi Sojerd, thanks and not to worry I will keep you all posted.
By nature I am a very patient, but it is difficult for me to see something that is running day in and day out and not knowing whether it will do what it is suppose to do and that is when I start to get impatient. I guess it must be the suspense maybe. :)
