    IMG_2374.JPG IMG_2375.JPG Got some hedge drug in there for the fish. Millet looking good. Also a small amount of water in it.

    I built a small pond few years ago on our property. Only 75'×110' and 6' deep in the middle. We have a lot of good shoots over that little.pond so dont be concerned about the size. We have blue gils and bullhead and bunch of minnows. If you build it they will come. Enjoy it!

    2-4" of rain predicted in the next 36 hours. That will fill it nicely

    It's been nearly a month on the jap millet. When can you expect to see heads forming?

    I just planted jap millet this yr for the first time it took about 40 days to produce seed. Around day 45/50 they all have seeded out now just waiting for plant to mature. I do browntop as well in my higher spots and it produced seed in 30 days the last few yrs and is usually mature for me in 45/50 days

    I've got a decent stand on the dam and around the pond. Don't know if that will attract birds or not.

    I spread seed all down in there. Some came up a lot did not and got washed down. Since it is heavy Clay what came up below the waterline did not do well.

    Still waiting on rain. Seeded some leftovers cereal rye around the pond as well. Hoping some green will get geese stopping by. Right now we need some stead rain for a couple days.
