Pretty lazy day today. Took the boys and Annie out for a nice little run. We went to the new pond to see what the last rain did for it. Still a long way to go but I am pleased to see that the fescue I sowed late last year has taken root. I paid special attention to the dam and that seems to have paid off. I went round and round the thing with a spiked roller behind my little tractor to help provide a welcoming seed bed for the grass.
I’ll pay a visit to the hatchery near us and buy some minnows to stock it with in the spring. That will help to provide a forage base for the bass and bluegill later on. I haven’t made up my mind whether to put catfish in this one. I’m leaning against it right now.
