Aquaponics and Fun with Soil

Two awesome links that have captivated me today.

First, this article on aquaponics (hydroponics meets aquaculture) where fish and plants grow in the same low-impact system. Definitely part of my 5 year plan. I love tilapia! You can read the article (with a lot of great links) HERE

Second, really fun craft time project once the soil thaws. Dorodango shiny balls made of soil! I don't know if I'll have the patience, but aren't they pretty? I definitely want to try making one. The early step is similar to how you would make a seed bomb (you put a bunch of seeds in and then form the ball just until it dries in the second step. Then you throw it where you want seeds to sprout).
