Don't know if there would be a better spot for this.

Thought this was a neat set up.

Pretty interesting. I will have to share this one with my husband. We have ducks...

it is just too bad that thus could not be done year round. Haha, and I just bet some of those "bits" are rodent pieces that fell into that drum. Hmmm...now why did I have to say that? Have to make a safe space and get some cats...but I'm not sure they would survive our pups. lol

I still like this idea.

The thing I like is that the ducks are easier to maintain than the fish.

The one thing I wonder is if it's a good idea to have the raw material going straight to the vegetables. Duck poo isn't fish poo and we normally compost manure before using it.

I had wondered about disease from everything splashing. Would it not stink as well in that tank?

I hadn't thought about the differences in waste. I wonder, though, since it is mainly being washed off, if it isn't as strongly concentrated. It is not like they are coating the garden directly and I wonder if that is why it could work.
