There are fewer things more satisfying and more manly than salvaging your own food. Coming home with a fresh kill and putting food on the table makes you feel like the provider nature meant you to be. What isn’t manly? Putting on your hot pink gardening gloves and bragging about how red your tomatoes are (and screaming whenever you see a spider). Let’s all agree that we love the outcome of gardening but none of us like to tell our buddies how much we love tending to it. We want the green peppers and other herbs that we can conveniently use to cook but hate putting in the work to make sure all of our plants don’t die.
What is the key to solving this problem? A self cleaning aquarium. After you bring your eyebrows back down a bit, Gadgets 4 Guys needs to explain the concept behind the AquaFarm. The idea is to place fish into the aquarium below while your plants (likely different herbs) grow on top. The fish waste actually feeds the plants and the plants return the favor by cleaning the water. It’s basically Simba sitting in front of you singing the Circle of Life. The other thing that G4G really liked about the AquaFarm was how clean the design was and the sharp contrast of white (from the aquarium) to the green (of the plants) was. It doesn’t look cheap and won’t get so incredibly nasty like the last fish bowl you got for your desk (you still miss that awesome fish Fluffy) and will look good on a window in your home kitchen. AquaFarm comes with everything you need and they even hook you up with a coupon on the beta fish you decide to get. You won’t be able to grow full stalks of corn or any dramatic tomato plants but will save you some money on herbs you use on a regular basis. It looks like they had a KickStarter campaign that completely killed it and now you can purchase the AquaFarm on their website. Click here for image source and where to buy.
