You know what I'm doing to say, right @MajorDan ? It's that "P" word again... time is a ponder's best friend!

And those plants look far from pathetic. Look how nice and green they are! I wish I had taken photos my first year - my bog plants were a lovely shade of yellow the entire summer! Year two they finally started to green up... THOSE were pathetic plants!

I think they look lovely! Don't worry - before long you'll be wondering WHY you ever thought the plants were too thin. Every garden (on land or in water) looks sparse when first planted. If it didn't, there wouldn't be any room for the plants to grow to their mature size. Hang in there! :giggle:

I am just feeling the pressure from the little ones in the neighborhood who drop in to see everything and ask interesting questions, like why do tomatoes start out green. Yes they inspect the peaches, blueberries and watermelons, and you think I am impatient.

The pond is coming along. Water quality, except for green water, is great. Bog plants are starting to show some growth and water lilies and pickerel rush are doing great too. The five shubunkins are growing and looking good. So all in all I am happy. Netting ordered so fingers crossed it gets here before evil heron does.

Submersible plants (red lugwikia, mermaid and hornwort) arrive in two-days with some trapdoor snails. Like the bog, I got three different types of plants hoping at least one takes hold in the pond so I can ditch the spawning mops. The mops have seen no action so far.

Looks like you have some Creeping Jenny in there, mine didn’t do much for a few weeks but have quadrupled in size since I planted them six weeks ago.
