i did not know that, good info. I spent some time in KY but only drove through Tennessee. My first question is do you all get the "White Fluffy Stuff"? Second could outdoor Hydroponics (aquaponics) work year round?

just research for son and the "THH" project. Being able to raise food without visibly exposing people is a absolute. The aquaponic setup is located within an enclosed courtyard and not visible to outsiders.

Thanks for the info.

Pess,

Pictures of Bo and Lilly, please. We have a Lily that lives with us too. No pictures of her. She runs around without her pants on. That is why we call her Lily Bare. Not to mention her other nick name is Lily Bear because she is semi feral.

The first two should be Lilly, full blood Pitt. The second two should be Bo, and he's allegedly half Black Lab, half Pitt or Neopolitan Mastiff. Lilly is 8 1/2 months, 68 lbs now, Bo is 8 months, 75 Lbs now....he doesn't look it is but he is actually slightly larger than Lilly, and VERY strong! Not that Lilly isn't!
Y'all have a good one!!

Nice dogs!

We get snow maybe 2-3 times in the winter, and it sticks once or twice. Usually, it melts off by the afternoon. We did get a blizzard in May or April of 1993, though. I imagine outdoor hydroponics would work, although you would need some kind of protection in the winter. It does stay below freezing a good bit (gotta have that to knock back the ticks), and sometimes gets down to zero, but generally winters are mild, compared to the rest of the country.

It also varies a good bit from one part of the state to the other. There's a reason the Tennessee flag has three stars. There are 3 regions: The Mississippi delta-type climate, the plateau (which is actually a finger of the Great Plains extending down into the middle of the state), and the eastern mountains, which are part of the Appalachian range. You get quite a bit of variation among those three climate areas.

Thanks for the update. Freezing temps would make the aquaponics a financial challenge. Fish and vegetables have a very limited operations temperature range. Not sure it would be cost effective with current house design. Back to the research table. The more information I get, the better the decisions. The "THH" project is a one in a life time event (cost vs. finances), so it has to be gotten right the first time. Again, thanks for the info, it helps a bunch.
