Don't these plants just look cool? They're growing in a plastic bin that was left in my barn by the previous owners. This shot was taken before the recent frosts wilted the taro down.
I'm currently testing duckweed as a chicken feed. I need to find a way to grow it in greater quantity, though. I put some in the algae-filled swimming pool of a local foreclosed home but it didn't take. It also doesn't seem to like much fertilizing.
As for the taro, it's grown rather slowly but I have hopes it'll take off this new year once things warm up again. I'm hoping to install a bed into my aquaponics setup-in-progress.
