Going Green and Sustainable in Hawaii
I have a good friend who has chosen to move to Washington State where they can have more for less. It isn’t cheap to live in Hawaii and there are always concerns about supply in case of storms or other disasters that would disrupt our supply line from the mainland and elsewhere. But my friend (and yes, I will be listing the home in Enchanted Lakes later this year – more on that later) had an aquaponic system he’d gotten from another friend when that friend choose to move.
Now it’s really advantageous to have someone who’s been running the system to help you move it and re-set it up. Some of the plants came with as did the fish, but I’ve now got Kale, Japanese green onions, basil, cilantro big plants going, as well as 18 pots of lettuce seedlings, tomato seedlings, and green bell pepper seedlings I transplanted. Threw in a bunch of seeds for spinach, mixed lettuces, collards, Tuscan kale, and romaine – and sprouts are up!
With help from a local guy in Waimanalo, near Kailua and ‘Aquaponic Gardening’ by Sylvia Bernstien, and a lot of adjusting and monitoring by my husband; I am not only a real estate agent in Hawaii; but now I’m a local farmer too!!
I’ll let y’all know when it’s time to harvest! (and share)
