I think aquaponics is generally too complicated and touchy to replace traditional gardening.
I did, however, pull my video because – despite the high level of positive comments – I decided that pulling clips of various gardener’s failures to make my points wasn’t very kind. Last night I was reading Psalm 1 again and was reminded “Blessed is the man who doesn’t walk in the counsel of the wicked, nor stand in the way of sinners, nor sit in the seat of scoffers.” By grabbing clips from folks, even though it was legitimately fair-use, I think I could have hurt some feelings and been too mocking. It’s not worth possibly hurting people to make my point. It’s just gardening, after all. I can make funny videos without making others look bad.
If it makes me look like a chicken, well, whatever. It’s better than running over people.
Very good Sir
You are a good man…David. I appreciate your wisdom, your humility and your integrity. God bless.
A big thing people in general need to re-learn is: one size does NOT fit all. Aquaponics is dependent on electricity, so I don’t even give it a second thought down here at the dead end of a dirt road off of another dirt road where power outages are simply a part of life (especially when a named storm comes around!). In fact, I did not let hubby set up the big chest freezer until we had a generator as a backup for big storms. Just like sheet mulching works in some areas, but I’ve been told no one in their right mind would do it in the Pacific NorthWe’t, aka Slug Paradise, aquaponics will work for some folks’ situation … but definitely not mine. I don’t even keep a fish tank here.
Invest in some solar panels. It sounds like you could desperately use a reliable source of power.
Way to end this on a positive note. As I’m sure you’d agree – time to move on. You’ve done the right thing by seeking guidance and acting on it. NOT quenching the Spirit!
You’re not chicken for showing some class on the internet.
His love for us never fails.. and He reminds us through unusual circumstances. It’s moments like this, that remind us all,to step back and dig deeper. Thank you. I have found a new appreciation for all you do. In Him….
Keep your chin up, put this behind and carry on. One little bump in the road of life compared to all the good you do. There is just no comparison. You have helped so many people, and continue to help so many people better their lives and their health. Take care and I pray that God will continue to bless you and your family.
Humility is truly a virtue; a very rare one. Good on ya.
