They average about 2.5 lbs, so we had about a 250lb harvest today.  Go to Nana Organic for a taste of some of our naturally-raised, local Tilapia!

David Blonsky talked about aquaponics, micro greens and working with Greens & Gills today during Social Media Week.  Thanks, Blonsky!

More Basil, More Problems? Not Really.

The basil got harvested today to go out to restaurant clients of ours, so I thought I would take some pics early this morning before they came out of the system…If you notice Siena Tavern’s pasta sauce tasting even better than it already is (yes, hard to imagine!!), that’s because they are now using Greens & Gills’ fresh, local basil.  #hardtobeat
