More so here in WA. Maybe next year I will try that idea. Did not think of it but once I am able to finish my pond I am planning to put them out in mesh containers during the summer and have the pond water run through the mesh. I have some aquatics in an aquarium waiting for the pond to be finished. I unfortunately messed up my back doing yard work. Spent July 4 in ER. Have been down since then and it has only been about a month that I have been able to do much, which explains the sudden drain on my bank account and my plant inventory growing.

Take care of that back! I live with chronic back pain. Operation in ‘93…it got me mobile and able to go. It wasn’t major but made a believer out of me!

Thanks. Wife has had 4 surgeries. Trying to avoid that with PT. Can not even do steroid injection until January as I am on blood thinners due to heart attack this past Jan. I hit 61 and started falling apart. Screwed up my neck while stretching after heart attack so I have neck and back issues now. Not to mention my Insurance Co. absolutely hates me now. Fortunately I chose the best our Company had to offer so bills were minimal.
