started with our first pond 16 years ago when a friend of
ours got us hooked! Being that we live in Wisconsin,
we have all seasons and all elements to deal with...
Our pond is 280
gallons in size and we have about 30 fish in it and all doing
well. Some of our fish are as old as some of our
grandchildren....isn't that so cool? At first we lost a lot of
fish because of what we believe to have been overfeeding...
then we heard that "a hungry fish is a healthy fish" ...and from
there on we never lost another fish....We have a koi that
is over ten years old....!!
I am into
gardening big time...I spend all my time (when it is nice and
not raining or snowing) outdoors... now that it is winter
here...my mind is on planning new projects for the yard for
The stone that
is around the pond is from a sidewalk we replaced... my husband
calls me the recycling Queen...!! We hope you enjoy our
photos and story as much as we enjoy sharing them with you!
