Spring is here and Will is grading our spring basin — 4 Comments

  1. Oh, Jackie! You and Will seem to make the perfect couple. In your first photos of him, he didn’t have quite the smile that he does now. More of a bashful look. His smile is almost as big as a Texas grin runnng from ear to ear now. Your happy homesteading life together surely shines. I enjoy all your blogs and all your happy photos! Thank you very much.

  2. Jackie, does the MN. DNR let you enlarge a natural body of water like that? We have to be careful here on how much brush clearing and changing we do to our creek so as not to be noticed by the MI. DNR. We can get in alot of legal trouble if it is discovered by a conservation officer (or an overhead plane) that we ‘improved’ the stream or surrounding wetland areas, even though its on our private property.
    I have areas that I’d love to dredge out and widen…but have to be cautious.

  3. Looking good Jackie and Will. Hurray spring has finally come!

  4. Jackie,

    I have heard that when the sun evaporates the waters, that sometimes it brings up fish eggs and baby fishes. That may explain why the fish showed up in your pond.
