I'll be selling my system come March or so for anyone planning ahead or if anyone here knows of anyone looking to start or grow an AP system.  I'll post some pics at some point. system is a 2 IBC tote garden bed, IBC sump, and IBC fishtank, have them feel free to contact me.  kim romen @ yahoo.

sad to sell it but more on that later.  i'm moving it to make room for a bigger area of water.

John, i thought u pulled your tomato plants and were going to start new?  what time of year do u do that?  mine didn't do well over the summer so i had to start over, now.  according to the calendar it was time to start them.  i'll cover them on the cold nights.  amazing what 2 goldfish will do!!!

Tomatoes, and peppers, don't like frost.  At all.  Ever.  I discovered that the hard way in year on of AP when I lost a dozen bell pepper fruit to the first frost.

This morning I noticed that I had ice on the grass on my front lawn, so today I picked what I expect to be the final tomatoes and peppers for this year.

Still and all, a good harvest.  Amazing what just two small goldfish can produce.

Matter of fact, it looks like bird poop splatter next to, and below, the plant.

Comment by Kim Romen yesterday

looks like a tomato to me and i planted some tomato seeds really early but they aren't much bigger than that.  :(

John, r u thinking that's why it won't make it?  too small?

Be my luck it's a tree!

Comment by Phil Slaton yesterday

When your media was laying out in the open before it was bagged.  A lot of birds flew over it and pooped on the pile.  Their poop carries seeds and your plant is the result.

This is a brand new system, no previous plants.  I think I will leave it in just to see what it is, plenty of nitrates to go around with the young plants in the system.

Comment by John Malone yesterday

Looks a bit like a tomato to me.   I get a lot of self seeded tomatoes where old fruit has dropped.

If it is a tomato then it's not going to do any good over winter.  Yank it out for something else.
