Summer 2002

Summer is officially here this weekend.  Thought it was time for some updates and pictures of the pond.  Never have gotten around to enclosing the new filter and building the 2nd.  I guess I'd better get busy because before I know it, fall will be here and I'll be waiting for next year!  This is the most important time of the year to make sure you have all the things taken care that you fish will need for the coming summer season.  As the weather warms, the stress on your fish will increase and it time to make sure your pumps and filters are are all in good working order.  I have also including some pics of my vegetable garden  I use the box gardening technique and love doing it as much the water gardening.
