We are hopefully going to have a new addition to our family very soon. Things aren't 100% yet, so I'll say more when I know it is absolutely going to happen. We are so excited and time is going by so slowly waiting for it to happen.
This week has been busy with working on getting the garden ready for planting this Spring and continuing to plant things in the duck run. I'm sure once I take down the fencing the ducks will likely destroy everything, but I keep trying.
The pond filter continues to have issues, lava rock is not a good filter media, it clogs up all the time. I'm currently doing some research trying to find a better option. I've talked to a couple pond experts and once they hear our pond is a duck pond, they say they aren't able to help, that it is pointless to even try because ducks are so messy. The new pump we got does seem to work pretty good, it is a Lifegard Aquatics 6600gph. I'll keep you posted on my research for the ideal filter media.
