Confession by Barbara2245
I went out to vote in a local election and on the way home stop to dig up some cattails growing in the ditch down the road. It was a fairly busy highway but fortunately only three or four cars went by. Only one had a good piece of root because I had to move fast. The ground was quite dry. I had to...

Any predator for mosquito fish? by Carl Beyer
Not sure what breed they are, kinda greenish blue, I have been following all the notes about them, and haven't heard of a good control method. They seem to be taking over my small pond, that is already over stocked. When I feed, the Koi and Goldfish seem to stay away from the food, and the dozens...

Can pond water make a dog/cat sick? by DaBear
Well, I hope not, I've had my pond in the ground for almost 17 years now, in one form or another, and I have cats and dogs both, they drink from it on a regular basis. None of them has ever taken ill from it. There are plenty of other things in a garden that can make a pet ill. Toads and Frogs both...

Can you identify this critter ? (halfly OT, found it near the pond) by Theo van Daele
I wanted to pick up this little twig the other day, but it moved... it turned out to be a butterfly/moth. Never seen something like this before, and I'm not sure it's native. Perhaps it escaped from a house somewhere ? Nature at it's best eh :-) (250 Kb download, but worth it I think ! )

solar powered ponds? by Brian
Hi, I'm new to this newsgroup, just doing research to see whether I'm going to put a pond in. I already bought some whiskey barrel planters to start off my yard with a water feature to see how it goes. To me, the most intimidating thing about doing a full pond is the electrical...

free hyacinths and celery by Mike Miller
It's that time of the year (finally) when summer in Chicago has heated up enough that I'm about to compost some of the water hyacinths. I'm also slowly removing as much water celery as I can, as it has been far too invasive, on land as well as in pond. Anybody in this area like any free plants? ...
