2017 ponding
Posted on Mar 28, 2017 6:18 AM

Started up the main pump yesterday. We think we have it figured out where the main falls is leaking. I want to work on the main falls this week to see if I can get it dealt with. Hopefully, we can get the rest of the pumps going soon. Vacuuming the pond and fertilizing waterlilies is a ways out.......

Pond 2017
Posted on Feb 20, 2017 8:47 AM

Temps are warming up. Yesterday was 62 and I sat out on the back deck with the fish. It was gorgeous and the fish are starting to move about. I would love to put in the pump for the main falls, but it seems so early. With the bubbler going, it is not a necessity, but still would be so great to get the pond up and running.

Pond heater died. I put in another one and have one more for back up.

I think it is going to be a long cold winter. I already miss sitting outside.
