what a joy

 Although we can’t complain about the winter we had this year mother nature is playing tricks on us again. Signs of spring and warm weather and now snow tomorrow??  What gives? While walking through the garden you can see signs of spring trying to emerge.   The fish in the pond will venture towards the water […]

love winter..

I can’t say I dislike winter….when it snows everything looks so pretty but then this winter has been pretty nice so far.  Temperatures are in the 50s today and the SUN is shinning.  Unusual for January in Ohio.  The pond is frozen but only a thin layer and the fish aren’t moving much although I […]

Fall is here

Its officially fall now and we need to begin preparing our pond for the winter and hopefully a cleaner pond for spring.  I’ve listed a few maintenance tips to guide you through preparing your pond for the winter.  I still have a few flowers appearing in my pond but I think they are almost through […]

Approaching end of summer

It won’t be long and summer will be over.  I already notice a difference with the days getting shorter.  It has started to cool off some from the hot weather we’ve been having.  All is doing well in the pond and it won’t be long and the garden will be finished.  I canned the first […]

ice and more ice

Its ice everywhere…..but at least its February so its almost over.   I will say its a pretty site but I still prefer the green color over the white!  I look outside and imagine pictures like this…     The plants continue to grow nicely in the greenhouses and while standing in there you almost can […]

Summer Time Temperatures in April?

We had highs in the low to mid 80’s the last couple of days here in Ohio.  One week snow, the next unseasonably warm. Don’t want to get too used to it though, next week we will be back to the normal spring time temperatures. Normal here this time of year is mid 50’s to […]

What Happened to Spring…..

This is what some of us in the North woke up to this morning, and this was after some of it had melted.  What happened to those 50 and 60 degree days???  Hopefully they will be back again soon.  How can we get started cleaning our ponds and thinking putting those new plants in if the […]

Blue Heron Decoy

Those annoying predators…..the one we dislike the most when we have fish swimming about.  Some of our customers have had their ponds depleted of fish because of the blue heron!  They are beautiful birds but please stay away from our ponds.  You’d think they’d go for the larger ponds with more fish. Blue Herons are […]

Predators, Oh No!

Unfortunately, our ponds exist outdoors and raccoons, blue herons and other wildlife are constantly visiting our piece of paradise. After all, they have to eat too! We have several products to help keep your fish, snails and frogs safe from becoming a gourmet meal for the local wildlife! We will be posting these products in […]
