Koi and Natural Fence

Koi grown up from a minnow, photo from last September.
They are all dormant now. I hope they survive another winter.
They are smart, hardy and fun fish. I wanted to take them out for the
winter but as soon as the
water cooled off they went deep and never came up again.
I was adjsuting the bubbler when a startled Koi came up and then drifted down again.





I like building natural fences. The art of it and problem solving is very rewarding. Not everyone appreciates it but many think its beautiful. Next summer I'll take more time and completely surround the orchard. It is very tall and keeps out the deer.

Permaculture and Polyculture Consulting and Design
Getting to know your property, the plants you have and those you can grow, is a fulfilling endeavor. With most I am the steward of the land. I give them good soil biology and they do the rest. If I group them in cohesive plant communities, they respond with greater yields. If I encourage the micro-organisms (Fungus and bacteria) , the roots obsorb more nutrients making a pest and disease resistant plant. A stronger plant that gives us more organic food and takes less energy.
