OK I know I said I would be putting Bluegill in the system….and I still am . I just have had a lot going on the last few weeks and I haven’t had a chance get them yet. I do have a couple suppliers in mind here close by . I hope to get up with them before the end of the month.
Today I decided to move the goldfish from the small pond to the new tank. They have been hiding in the bottom behind the filter for a while now. I also wanted to use the pump from the pond to aerate the tank, with a spray bar. So that necessitated the moving of the fish. They seem to be happy and I hope they will eat some of the algae that has formed. The water is staying about 50 degrees or so, which perked them right up.
The tomato and other potter plants are doing well. The temp does drop down at night to the upper 30′s ( on really cold nights) but stays above 50 most of the time, and gets to the mid 80′s during sunny days.
My Kalonchoe is getting ready to bloom. This a cutting off one I gave my wife that got leggy and looking bad. Interested to see how it does.
I pulled the celery that I trans planted from the other system to here. It was looking terible. I found that it had 5 new stalks growning from it. So I cut them off and cleaned the dead and dieing branchs from theem. Then replanted them in with the tomatoes.
My Strawberry is having some issues. I may have to do something about it. The leaves are yellowing ,have to see what the addition of the fish does.
That was a cold morning, and they are in the shade in the winter time most of the day. I am planning on taking this down and setting up a single growbed at the end of the pond. For the Growing season. Then bring the goldfish back in here till next winter.
