I am seriously considering an above ground pond for raising some catfish in this section here. I think next to palms and farming aquaculture rules!

these christmas palms survived the snow from a few years ago and dig like creampuffs, I think I will do some more in the field, nothing overboard a hundred or so in 3's

things got a little temporarily hectic as chopping back the cursed blue sky flower revealed we had some unexpected guests, a quick dousing of wasp and hornet killah and a lil water break it was safre to move back in and continue with the carnage!

Hey Tad,

Any chance of starting a new thread, this one is getting pretty long and takes ages to load when I'm on dial up.

Thanks

Bruce

Tad,

Great pictures of your work.  I keep them coming.  But, maybe as Bruce said it would be good start from another spot.  My connection is now better than dial up, but nowhere near what my kids have in Florida.

Thanks, again for the pictures.

You could start on 1-1-08 entitled "A Year at the Farm - 2008".  Take us through a year of a commercial palm growing operation.  That would be awesome.
