Farm Notes – by Jen
Greg took an online course on Pond Management over the winter and was able to acquire a permit from the Fish and Game Commission to add some fish to our pond to help with the algae growth and possibly help clear up the water. The Hilltop Fish Hatchery had just opened this past weekend – so we took the opportunity to do a homeschool field trip and learn about what it takes to raise different kinds of fish in a hatchery. We had lots of fun!
The girls and I headed north to Cory, PA on April 1. We were so lucky to have skirted the storms that rolled through, and it seems that the storm preceded us everywhere we went. Even the hatchery was running on a generator when we got there.
The fish were sent home with us in big baggies with water and air, and zip tied closed. They could last 4 hours in those bags. Well…. the ride back to the farm was an adventure, as trees were down everywhere! Lots of detours to get home. We just made it home in under 4 hours (normally a 2 hour drive!). We acclimated the fish to the pond temperature and then released them into their new habitat.
It will be interesting to see what happens throughout the summer. Will the pond clear up? I’ll keep you posted!
