Spending $10 for less than a pound of catfish on Thursday increased my appetite for buying my outdoor fish.
I knew the Fish Wagon [aka Arkansas PondStockers] was going to be at the Manassas Southern States Coop Friday. So I went for it. I picked up 25 hybrid bluegills, 50 redear, and a pound of minnows - all for less than $60. I plan to pick up a handful of catfish in a month or two, when I've got the 300 gallon tank in place.
I know I'm doing it all backwards. But having the fish in the tank, crying out for the greenhouse to be built, has made clearing a couple of trees an emergency. Mere planning for a greenhouse would have allowed the hard tree-clearing part to get delayed for weeks, months, years.
Trees are down now, with a small bit of bad news. Apparently my greenhouse can't be taller than the brick wall at the end of my property. Which would make the greenhouse, I don't know, like 4'8" tall. The lady purveying the unhappy news did make some helpful suggestions that might work, though. And my greenhouse design can be scaled to whatever height is allowed.
