i worked on enlarging the pond mudhole glorified baby wading pool tonight for about an hour. got my ashtma bronchitis whatever you want to call it up. stopped every few minutes. still made good progress. now it's about a foot deep and about four by three. the geese kept jumping in and out of it. funny how we try to keep htings so clean for them but they like it dirty. the geese were going to town investigating the dirt and diggin it out of the water. eventually, and this may be next spring, i want to have a least a horseshoe pond if not a doughnut one with a small island in the middle. i build up the island area right now with the dirt i excavate a bit at a time. before winter starts too much, i want to have a tarp lining it with a lot of dirt piled over it. i remember seeing something that was a pond de icer for pretty cheap that was shaped like a lily pad i think. has anyone seen anything like that?
