Earth Day 2013

Today is Earth Day!

garden

To celebrate this special day, we take care of our small “garden” create last year in our balcony. We grow aromatic plants, vegetables and flowers.

It always feel good to do something with you own hands and see your project develop as time pass. In addition having fresh aromatic plant available is quite handy.

Tips learn from last year:

Plants can grow quite a lot, especially vegetable. So don’t be shy in spacing plant.

Create an aquarium

aquarium

It’s been a really long time I wanted an aquarium. By watching fishes I get very relax and so do you.

But the noise of the filter or air pump, the price of tank or the fact that the fish are in a place I don’t see often was too much of an annoyance for me.

But what if I could get rid of these inconveniences?

Gold fish can leave in a simple tank. With no need for electricity I can put the tank in my study table and make my work environment more relax. Finding a cheap tall tank was an issue, but walking in Ikea a found the prefect tank.

Cheap as well as vertical so it doesn’t take too much space on the desk, this was perfect.

I was afraid it might break with the water pressure, but after few tests it holds without any issue.

And here is the result for less than 100$ including everything plus 3 months of food.

It’s been now 2 months we have the aquarium and everything have been fine.
