Aquaponics – part IV

In the previous three posts I shared more about our little backyard aquaponics project. The pictures show a lot, although they are written in Dutch (I lost the English translation). In the few months since the last post I’ve learned a few more things. I’ll spread them out over a few categories: The system The [...]

Aquaponics – deel II

Het is nu twee maanden verder en het aquaponics project loopt goed! Maar eerst even een terugblik wat er volgde op de vorige blog. In de dop (die nu de bodem van het groeibed vormt) heb ik een rond gat geboord en daarin een 40 mm pijp gehangen, die eenvoudigweg met een kort stukje 50mm [...]

The road to Rome

I’m enjoying the Italian sunshine and mild weather while I’m typing this blog as I’m waiting for my bus to Perugia. After a busy month I’m finally on my way to Rome, with a three-week in-between stop in Perugia to follow an Italian language- and culture course at the University for Foreigners. As of today [...]

Italia and other stuff

The year 2012 hasn’t started yet, but in my mind I’m already living in the next year. God encouraged me to set a lot of time apart this week to sit with Him, pray, listen and receive vision for the next year. He helped me a little by clearing out my agenda, somehow almost all [...]
