Zen and the art of Pond Maintenance
So here we are in the spring trying to deal with the sludge that winter has left us. All but one of our koi were taken from us by a wild mink this winter. It's a heartbreaking thing as these fish have been family members for over 5 years and were like little dogs swimming up to us when it was dinnertime looking for their chow. We netted the one terrified remaining guy and put him in a tub while we drained and cleaned the pond. And by "we" I mean of course my fabulous pond boy Tommy.
