Aquaponics Koi & Duck Pond . . . Amazingly Clear Water – A Ketogenic Gardener’s Dream
This aquaponics stuff is amazing! Came home today to crystal clear water. Even with 9 ducks and 11 fish in the pond, the two lightly planted grow beds and the bogs have cleared up the water with amazing speed. The algae has disappeared even in direct sunlight and temperatures in the 112-114 degree range over the last week.
So, in celebration of nature attaining pond water clarity in just two weeks, I added three more beautiful Koi.
It is fascinating how very calming it is to my soul to sit by the pond and watch the ducks & fish. It appears that a nearby hive of bees is using the pond for a water supply as there is always at lease 5-10 little honey bees driking at the water’s edge. I’ve seen dragon flies come by daily. What amazes me is that I’ve now seen more hummingbirds, cardinals and wrens in the last week than I’ve seen all year. My dogs love it and in the 114 degree weather, wading your feet in the water is so very refreshing.
You can see the progress of this pond over the last 9 months here at The Doc & The Horse.
Now to begin planting my leafy green veggies . . .
