Wow so I was way wrong on my pond it's 40 gallons xD plus a one gallon waterfall top half but i won't count it since the fish won't be able to get up there unless they sprout wings and fly. My only concern is frogs since they lay eggs in the pond sometimes and I fear a frog that's fairly big gobbling them up so hopefully I can put up a little fence around the pond to keep frogs out. Besides cleaning it out....we found like 13 dead frogs and 2 dead mice o.o so I think it would be good for everyone, the pond is so deep and has such tall walls that sometimes when they get in they can't get back out.
DAAAW and those faces, it will be hard to not spend my whole day in the garden talking to those fish xD because I'm not crazy enough as it is talking to betta.
And Viola do you have a deck? Even a small one or good window's that get lots of light? My aunt lives in an apartment and is a HUGE garden person but she uses her deck and windows with potted plants, even grows tomato's and peppers in bots on her deck and gets those long pots to plant like mini gardens.
As for the veggies and fruit we grow we keep it to ourselves, we even had an egg laying chicken who was also a pet as well that we got fresh eggs from but...this winter a coyote got into the barn and killed her D": rip Tiki. We keep all the veggies we grow to save on money at the store because in the long run we save a LOT. We grow grapes, blueberries, raspberries, strawberries, watermelons, peppers, tomato's, potato's, carrots, onions, and cucumbers. Even growing some corn this year in the back pasture where our miniature horses are.
As for crazy weather we have had it too, we had snow on the ground until just the other day and now it's all melting and in the 70's FINALLY. Minnesota has never ending winters T.T
