Our local co-op had fish to stock ponds for sale today so we went out and got lots of advise and lots of fish to start stocking our pond on our new farm. We got catfish, bluegill, grass carp and minnows to start and will add bass in the fall. Here are some pictures.







can you see the minnows in this pictures? Everything is getting so green up there, I love it.

that is the first think i noticed - how green it is getting!

My brother has a small pond in our backyard and he has a bass, catfish and something else i already forgot what it was. they caught them when fishing and he had to bring them home!

Will you fish out of your pond?



So what are you going to start building first on the property?

Well we just got our septic tank in and field lines so we can get our garage built with an apartment in it so we can live there while we build. We really are playing it by ear as the economy is so erratic right now. We really want to sell our current home before we start building our actual home. We might start fencing and build my goat barn when the garage is done.

Oh and yes we will eventually fish out of our pond. It is about 2 acres and 25 feet deep so we hope to have alot of fish in it. my hubby and son love to fish.

2 acres -- really! wow thats a big pond!!!!! our entire property is only 1 acre

As to building and the economy.........I was hearing about that from a friend and she said the price of just copper pipes went up like 600%!

I'm so jealous ... in a good way :wink: What a beautiful site and having a stocked pond is fantastic.

Best of wishes on all your building and on selling your current house so you can make the move.

Wow- that is so neat- it's deep enough that the herons and such can't clean you out. Talk about self-sufficient- and fish pooped water- great for irrigation.
