Ponds at the Old Bear's Den

This past February I built a small pond alongside our cabin to "fill in" a hollow left by a massive stump that had been pushed there during the clearing of our build site. We were limited with how wide and deep we could go with it due to risk of damaging major roots of nearby live trees. I knew we would have the option of expanding later depending on how much my husband would allow me to get away with! :sneaky:

As it turned out, my husband loves the pond and is all about going bigger, as well as participating in the build, so we are currently working on the expansion together. The existing pond will become our bio-pond, and a small stream will flow from it to the new pond of approx. 2,000 gallons. I'll post our progress here.

Oh that's nice! I can just imagine how relaxing it would be to sit on that great porch and sip some 'Old No. 7' and enjoying the view and pond. Absolutely love your bio about the nitrogen cycle and customers who didn't care. Oh yeah, I've heard it too, "Hey, just give me some fish and something to keep them from dying!' Good luck!
