How fast do tadpoles grow? by Galen Hekhuis
About a month ago I had a bulldozer and front end loader come in and scoop out a big hole in the ground. Actually, the thing looked like it had been a pond before, in that it was fairly deep and full of water. But someone had turned it in to a junk pile, with a bunch of willows and weeds...

I installed a Little Giant NK-2 submersible pump into my pond to supply the water fall. The way the pond is constructed, I had to cut the power cord to run it through a hole in the bottom, and then splice it to power in a junction box. I was careful to seal the junction box. The pump operated...

Had a great white heron visit us for the past few days. I scared it away several times, but he still managed to spear 1 of the smaller koi through the netting, he just couldn't pull it out of the netting, and me running out the back door didn't give him the time to try. I can tell spring is coming...
