Baby fish update

About a month ago I told you that I had managed to hatch some goldfish eggs.. Well not me personally. I doubt they would survive me sitting on them  :-)  I fished the pond weed out of the pond and some eggs were attached.  I also rescued a few tiny fish hatchlings (fry) from the pond.  In total I have about a dozen and they vary in size from about 1cm to 2cms. I will keep them in the 'maternity tank' until next spring when hopefully they will be big enough and strong enough to live in the pond. I will rehome a few to friends that might like a couple of goldfish for their pond..  It has been lovely watching the transformation from a tiny little egg to the proper little fish that they are today.  The photo isn't great but the little blighters won't stay still

    1. I have just been potting up some more fruit pips and stones.. They have sprouted and are ready to put into pots. I have six lemons, three almonds and ten pomegranate pips.
